I decided to wipe my Opensuse system and reinstall it. I just deleted
the partitions and started over. Now during every install after CD1
shows done and all the files are copied it hangs. I did it twice with
the 32 bit version and twice with the 64 bit verson. If I go back to
install and select boot installed system, it boots hda6 no problem but:
I can't log in. Root user does not work. It will not take root for a login.
I have Windows XP Media center on the other partition. I am guessing
Windows came out with a patch that PREVENTS linux from being loaded with
a dual boot with Windows. It has to be since I have never had this
problem before; on ANY system. THis is an Acer 5100 laptop with athelon
X2 64 processor. ANy Ideas?
Run the repair mode from the openSUSE CD/DVD. Otherwise log in on 'init
1' if that will work and also look at the messages that scroll by if you
see anything there. That means running in 'init 3' and type 'ESC' with
the neat screen.
Well guess what, I downloaded Opensuse 10.3 Alpha 6, burned it and
installed it on a clean, secure erased drive. It hung up on writing the
boot loader! Something is up with hda0 track 0 and I think it's Windoz.
