Yesterday I was able to occupy the TV for a few moments to try again, and here what i
1st i should note, that It always annoyed me with opensuse 11.1-ppc beta 5.1 that i could
not change the resolution. Since I am a big KDE fan, I lower the resolution to save
memory, and doing this (720p on the boot splash) sent me to a black terminal.
You're right about that, thanks for letting me know. It's not a big
issue you can just rerun petitboot-gui and it should be fine.
A while ago I tossed the openSUSE 11 ppc, but I found
OpenSUSE 11.1 beta 2. Then took the otheros.bld from that one, powered down and up, and
suddenly I noticed the graphic is moving on the splash screen, and i could set the
resolution - even when installing beta 5 :-)
So i started on the otheros.bld from 11.1beta2 to install 11.1 beta5.
We moved to the latest upstream version of petitboot which has a lot of
the code rewritten.
But then it was VERY SLOW, and never finished. 1st try
dies in the partitioner (freeze). Second try sent me to a terminal, where the questions
followed on cli, but I gave up when it asked for the installation server (it did not see
the DVD anymore??)
Still not there yet.
Sounds like bad media to me.
As to the different brands of DVDs - indeed my beta 2
is burnt on another brand of dvd media.
Since they are at home I cannot be sure about the beta 2 (but i think it is verbatim) but
beta 5 is on a imation DVD.
I've been using Verbatim and these worked fine for me.
Thanks for all your feedback, it's appreciated!
