9.2 64bit install kernel panic
Hola all,
Im installing SuSe 9.2 64bit via purchased DVD.
After the first install screen it loads the kernel then blank screen (gui) or the following error (text mode);
<0> Kernel Panic - not syncing: attempting to kill init!

Suse 9.1 installs fine.

Here are my system specs;
iWill DK8X mobo
2x AMD Opteron 250 procs
4Gb mem (2 per proc)
Lsi 20320-R SCSI card
2x Seagate cheetah 146G
nVIDIA GeForce Fx5200 128mb video

I tried to install on a sata drive (with the scsi card rmvd) same problem.

Im starting to go crazy!!!!!!!!!

thanks for your time

I was able to install with 2gb ram.
however the system will not boot with 4gb!!
It hangs during boot up when 'starting system'
I've ran memtest with no errors.
Is there something I have to enable so Suse 9.2 will support 4gb ram?!

I suggest you first update (flash) your BIOS-ROM.
Then take a look on your /boot/grub/menu.lst
Is there a boot parameter: swiotlb=16384 ?

If yes remove it. Also add mem=4000m as boot parameter.

Since you have purchased the DVD you may contact SuSE for installation support.

and check your bios for "Plug-and-Play OS installed=no"
