Suse 8.1 Pro Installation Problem

Recommended Posts

Hi there ,

 

1st of all , Happy New Year To All Of You Out There

 

Now...

 

Yesterday i went to buy the package of suse 8.1 pro cause i was quite

 

pleased of the linux in general , i was with mandrake 9.0 before and

 

before go and buy the package of suse 8.1 pro i got the live eval 1st to

 

check if it's ok at my laptop which was working okay

 

So yesterday finaly i went to get it.I came home unpatient and the smile

 

soon went off my face as i realized that before even writing the files the

 

system halted , after a lots of tries and lots of ways of install

 

I've noticed that the ehci-hcd probe drove my laptop to halt completely so

 

next time i pressed cancel and kept going with the instalation which went

 

great....

 

Till the reboot,when the system was loading went to the screen with the

 

OK 's the final i saw was

 

"Starting hotplugging services [net pci usb_ with the cursor there blinking

 

 

That's it.

 

 

It's almost 24hours of trying and ahm really pissed about it

 

I think i just throw 90$ away , i even tried to call the guys here in italy

 

and they hanged up the phone , i called in germany maybe they were

 

closed i dont understand german anyway

 

I've sent mails too after the activation...

 

Please advise , ahm really desperate and i'll appreciate if you help me out

 

 

The irony is that they have my laptop as certified as the suse 8.1 pro is perfectly working ... usb2.0 halts the system ... ? but my laptop uses usb2.0

 

And i spent 3000euro on this one

So far so good ,

 

During the installation progress i pressed cancel to the ehci-hcd only and i probed all the others

 

So the installation was finished

 

Then at the OK's screen halts at the :

 

Starting hotplugging services [net pci usb

 

Sooooooo After a thought i tried to execute :

 

init=/bin/sh and when i took prompt i tried :

 

su root and tried to execute YAST to block the services from being loaded that makes my system halt

 

But it's RONLY so i can't do a thing

 

Any ideas ???

 

(I tried to fsck and then umount/mount -rw , but still no dice)
