Hi Folks, I'm new here so apologies for bringing in a problem as my first post.
Using the LXF147 DVD, I just can't get Susie to load into RAM. All I get after the boot list, having pressed Enter with Susie highlighted, is a brief 'Loading Kiwi boot system...Creating...' Then the screen goes blank for as long as I want to wait, have gone with it up to four minutes. No response from the keyboard, so a hardware restart.

I have tried the F3 and then 'live' at the command line, but this just brings up Debian. All the other stuff on the disk seems okay, so I wondered if I just have a bad disk, or if anyone else has had this problem?

Thanks in advice for any advice.
Keith.

Sorry, I cannot help you with the problem but the same distro was on LXF 144 - or you could download it directly from the openSUSE site.

Thanks John. I may contact LF about a bad disk before I go download Susie, just in case it's something that has happened to other users. I have tried it on three different machines now, all with the same result, so I guess it must be the disk is damaged in some way, although it looks okay.
Regards, Keith.

Out of interest, I've tried it today on some oldish hardware.
It loaded fine (but I didn't like it, as I couldn't find where some of the device setup was hidden).
