I try to install 11.3 RC2 in HP Mini 311, Intel Atom N280, with Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g. Using KDE Live CD, YaST stop at 41%. Try ctrl+alt+f1 to see what happen in the text mode cannot work also.
Maybe the f1 is available together with fn button. Does ctrl+alt+fn+f1 work ?
That probably will not work. The bug in question causes the machine to freeze because address of the SPROM on the Broadcom device was changed. The 2.6.34 driver is not aware of the change and attempts to read at the old address. On some, but not all, netbook motherboards, this attempted read of a non-existent address locks the machine.
I think the answer for the Live CD is to include a "brokenmodules=ssb" line when booting, but I need to test it.
I cannot confirm it right now whether it works or not. I will test it as soon as possible..
