asus m2n32 + Suse 10.1
i'm trying to install suse 10.1 on the following machine:
mb: asus m2n32 sli deluxe with nForce 590
cpu: athlon 64x2 3800+
ram: 2 Gb ddr2 800
graph: 7900gt

and am running into problems.
first of all - the initial reboot after the first phase of installation brings me a black screen. when booting "failsafe" it says that it can't find /dev/sda6 where the root partition is. i've found a weird enough way around it: starting the installation process again, but when selecting the type of installation i go for "other=> boot installed system" and i arrive at the second phase of installation where it proceeds till i have a ready desktop but w/o sound or network.

when rebooting with a completely installed system - again: black screen or mounting error. so the only way i can reach my desktop is this "install-->boot installed system" trick.

secondly - i was thinking that installing network and making a system update could fix this weird behavior, but network doesn't give in easily as well (the log is below)

i didn't touch the video card yet - although it was recognized during the installation, and X seems fine, but 3D acceleration doesn't work.

i'd greatly appreciate any comments/suggestions on this situation!!!

Re: asus m2n32 + Suse 10.1
I have the exact same setup and I am receiving the exact same error. Have you gotten this to work?

Re: asus m2n32 + Suse 10.1
This error is caused by using the wrong kernel (initially the *-smp-* Kernel will loads for multiprocessor-support) by auto setup.

Let the machine boot from CD/DVD. Choose "Installation", "Other" and "Boot installed system".

The system now will boot correctly, use YAST, install the default kernel and uninstall the wrong one.

Well, SuSE isn't perfect ;)
