I've tried to install Suse linux 7.0 many times on my B&W G3, using YAST
and YAST2 and several different kernels, but I always get problems with the
actual software installation. The same thing happens every time:
installation ends prematurely and I am left with a VERY incomplete
system. I try to reinstall the full system and I get messages about
unresolved dependencies (especially with ELF), even when I am installing
"almost everything". I'm starting to wonder if there is a problem with the
CD, but it sounds similar to your problem!

I am having a ton of trouble installing from the CD.
I get to the ash_ RPM files and it bails, i get
"an RPM error occured"
and then the installation bails. I am able to copy
the contents of the CD off so i am not totally
convinced that it is the CD but i am having some
serious difficulty was wondering if there were any
'good' workarounds or solutions.
i am attempting to install the PPC version on a B&W G3
