I am new to Linux and originally installed Ubuntu 6.10 on my Dell Optiplex GX110 system without any fatal problems. After reading a very positive review on Linux.com, "openSUSE 10.2: the best Linux desktop yet?" http://www.linux.com/article.pl?sid=06/12/11/1526210, I installed openSUSE 10.2 on my notebook computer without problems and liked it so much that I want to switch to openSUSE on my desktop computer as well.
I'm getting this installation error:
"Your computer does not fulfill all requirements for a graphical installation. There is less than 96 MB memory or the X server could not be started. As a fall back, the text front-end of YaST will guide you through the installation..."
The problem is likely that "the X server could not be started", because my system has 256 MB SDRAM installed. The CPU is an Intel Pentium IIIE, 933 MHz. The properties of the integrated video adapter are:
Device Description Intel Corporation 810 Graphics Controller Hub Adapter String Intel810 Video Accelerator BIOS String Intel Video BIOS Chip Type Intel810 DAC Type Internal Memory Size 4 MB
My monitor is a Samsung SyncMaster 753DF:
Manufacture Date 2003 Max. Visible Display Size 32 cm x 24 cm ( 15.7") Picture Aspect Ratio 4:3 Horizontal Frequency 30 - 71 kHz Vertical Frequency 50 - 160 Hz Maximum Resolution 1280 x 1024 Gamma 1.82 DPMS Mode Support Active-Off
Has anyone run into this problem and found a solution, know a likely solution, or have some pointers on how to solve an installation problem like this?
