Hi, friends,

Bought a new laptop Asus PL30JT-RO030X - unfortunately
only with Win7PRO :-(.

Wanted to install openSUSE 11.2 and failed at 1st because
of a too slow external DVD drive (via USB).
With a more modern drive I'd success (BIOS has recognized
the drive) and the installation went on without hickups.

Trying to boot the installed system initially it goes as
usual (I see the kernel messages during boot flying over
the screen).

But then - when it comes to the graphical login - the
screen goes dark and NOTHING more is happening :-(

Succeeded in booting a live UBUNTU and could save some
logfiles to a stick. I see some error messages in
/var/log/Xorg.0.log which hardens my suspects it could
be a matter with the graphics.

Unfortunately I'm (not yet) fit enough to interpret
those error messages good enough.

The Xorg.0.log and some more logfiles can be found at - I didn't want to
make this mail unnecessarily fat.

Some data of the laptop:
CPU: Intel Core i5 processor 520UM (1,06 GHz)
Number of Processor Cores: 2
Frequency: 1066 MHz
Memory: 4096 MB (DDR3-1066)
Chipset: Intel HM55 Express
Grapics Chip: NVIDIA GeForce G310M (memory 1024 MB)
Display: resolution 1366x768 pixels

- Where/how can I change something to adapt the system
appropriately before booting?
- Are there boot parameters to clean up this problem?

Help !!!!

Thanks in advance for Your efforts and suggestions!



Try adding vmalloc=128MB to your grub command line. If that doesn't work,
increase it to vmalloc=256MB and try again.
