http://forums.opensuse.org – I'm trying to install opensuse using the internet install feature. After the loading linux kernel screen, I see a black screen with a lot of commands/steps. It keeps hanging at the line: [2.202543] [<c0804db73>] kernel_thread_helper+0x7/0x10 And at the same time, caps-lock and scroll lock lights on my keyboard are blinking. What does this mean? what i see is this: Code: [2.121594]  VFS: cannot open root device "<null>" or unknown-block (3,1) [2.121873] please append a correct "root"= boot option; here are the available options: [2.122217] debug_block_ext_devt is enabled, you need to specify explicit textual name for "root"= boot option [2.122631] kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknow-block (3,1) is this caused by the fact that I have an incompatible filesystem on my partition? What filesystem should I have to be able to install opensuse? (Distributions)
