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 rev.1 (OS 8.6.1)on an external SCSI,
