Warning --SUSE 10 beta 4 -laptops with INTEL SIS chipset


Forgot to mention if your laptop has the above chipset you might get the same error as 9.3 --No Hard Disks

Solution

1) again (like installing 9.3) have Kernel boot option

insmod=ide-generic

and 2) REMOVE PCMCIA cards from slot -- first time through I had a wireless card in the slot.

Otherwise as specified previously --this beta (4) EVERYTHING works.

You can do either an update or a fresh install -I'd recommend you try both if you've got the time and machines available --remember it IS a beta so expect some hiccups and be pleasantly surprised that there doesn't appear to be any nasties in thsi one.

Cheers

-K

Why didn't you just create one thread for the beta 4 release?

Sometimes you don't have tiime to post all the observations at once -- Internet availability -- other work etc etc.

You only get a chance to do this after the whole install --and that might be 3 or 4 days later depending again on how much time you have / other things to do etc etc.

If I come across a snag which could cost some people time then I can't see what's wrong in posting the info --if I can't find the solution maybe somebody else can.

Actually I was only trying to help people from wasting their time -- if you don't want or need the info then fine

I just wish some of this info had been available to me --it would have saved a LOT of time.

I hope when you find some info YOU need you'll be greatful to the person who posted it.

Cheers

I just thought it would be easier to follow if it was all consolidated in one thread - My beta 4 experience or something
