trouble installing opensuse 10.3?


Hello,

I have recently got a new computer, and I have been trying to install openSUSE 10.3 on it. But, the screen will go blank and become unresponsive if I boot with the default options. When I switch to text mode, it boot and stops when it outputs time: pit clocksource has been installed. Switching to safe settings will make no difference. Right now, I am using openSUSE 11.1, but I'm not very happy with it, so I intend to replace it with 10.3. I'm not sure what the pit clocksource is, and can it be disabled, or some workaround?

my specs are:
AMD Athlon 64
PCIe NVIDIA 7100 GS
NVIDIA MCP61P northbridge chipset

If theres anything I didn't mention, tell me, I'll post it.

thanks,
rabbit2345

Unless you have a defective install DVD,
I'd say that the OS from year 2007 will
not recognize newer hardware.

If you want a 'look alike' system with a
modern kernel, PCLinuxOS 2009.1 or Kubuntu
version 8.04.x can be recommended.
Both can be tried out as live cd's.
And both : Long term support.
