with no more things to do at this run level. Can't run live nor
install. Why the difference between Ubuntu and OpenSUSE?

That has nothing to do with _running_ a live CD, which is what is
being complained about. It sounds like there's a bad burn and the OP
could do with reburning fresh copies of the openSUSE CDs, and checking
the md5sum of the disc after the burn has completed.

I agree with doing an MD5SUM check on the burnt CD/DVD.
However I come across this issue occasionally when the machine has bad
ram. I also often find that caching has been turned off in the BIOS in
an attempt to hide ram or motherboard issues.
