Today James asks,
Hi I am trying to make the the switch from windows to Linux I watched you and I found you and bryan via YouTube and thus decided I would try open Suse Tumbleweed as my first distro. I downloaded the .iso and burned the DVD I went to install it I can make it through the installer just fine but when it goes to apply the packages the install just hangs. I have a message saying it found a Linux console terminal on /dev/ Console (80 columns x25 lines) starting yast 2 and the message would read found duplicate at line 592 ignored and another one at 652 ” vendor I’d”. I looked around on line and everyone says it is a no mode set issue but once I reach this point my keyboard and mouse locks up as well. I tried nomodeset and modeset=O but it did not change anything. Any thoughts or ideas of how to resolve this. I should tell you now I wiped windows now windows nor Suse will install currently. So I have to make one of these work might as well b e linux.
Thanks for your help!
