Personal SUSE build installation issues.

Image

I have created a personally made SUSE-based distro using susestudio.com and it will install just fine on my laptops (32-bit Acer Aspire One ZG5 and MacBook 4,1). However, when installing on an old Emachine desktop, I get the following error seen in the image. It has two hard drives with the largest one split as /boot (ext2), / (ext4), Linux-swap, and /home (ext4). I used to have Puppy Linux hard installed just fine (I know; unconventional), with grub working. It essentially just hangs on that screen with an unresponsive keyboard. Is there a fix or missing packages I should add to my build to avoid this? The machine doesn't have a lot of RAM, but I did the install via IceWM and Yast through the terminal and walked away. I came back with what looked like the typical restart after an install. I thought this was kind of odd since graphically it asks questions regarding grub and no automatic restart on the other computers.

My first suspicion on it freezing, given old hardware, is graphical incompatibility. Make sure GRUB isn't trying to do anything with a fancy boot overlay screen or anything, just a basic raw text one.

Personal SUSE build installation issues.

All suse-branding packages were removed before building and the grub menu is text only. For some reason, it just doesn't show up. It may be the partition formats. I just don't understand why it freezes on hd0,3 (should be /home partition). Also, the ext2 formats it is saying isn't correct. I may have to just not journal anything and try again. At least it just skipped over the Linux swap partition.

The DVD I made to boot from works just fine. It's a little slow, but that's why I picked IceWM. It also has GNOME 3, Kodi, and XFCE. XFCE works fine from the disk. It's a e-machine W3080 with 3000+ AMD Athlon Processor. I added RAM to make it a total of 778 MB. It's not much, but it runs like butter on the ACER with only 1G of RAM and 1.1Gz.

Hm. You say this is an old computer. Did you reinstall GRUB too, or are you using the old GRUB?

I wiped the whole hard drive and split it into 4 parts for different flags. I'm trying again now.

Almost got done with the installation, but the caps lock and scroll lock lights started blinking for a few minutes and the computer restarted itself without any prompts.

That's a kernel fault of some sort. If it was in graphical mode at the time, difficult to say what.

Well, my ISO is 2.2GB and is based off of 13.2 32-bit. I think I'll try wiping the HD again but only use one partition and one of the default install options.
