http://forums.opensuse.org – I cannot get the new 11.2 to install on my machine. THe moment i hit enter at the boot prompt to begin installation, the scree just goes black and unresponsive - caps & scroll lock lights on the keyboard light up and remain lit. no disk activity whatsoever. I tried installing various resolutions, in text mode none gets past the black screen. Acer aspire AM1100 Athlon XP 3600+ (64x2) 8GB ram Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. edit: Note - 11.1 never had this problem. Also it is not the same post install ATI driver issue from other threads. This hang up happens immediately after the boot prompt so I cannot even install 11.2 (Distributions)
