y2log installation log with default settings

No GUI shown during installation.

The GUI is only shown after manually selecting the video resolution.

It's very confusing when the installer does not show any GUI after the boot

It took a long time, effort and dedication to determine that the system can
show a installer GUI. Initially I thought that LVDS-1:d and VGA-1:e were
needed to make the installer GUI show up. In the end and with experimenting,
it seems that video=1280x1024 works.

The latter can be obtained via <F3>(video) and the selection of 1280x1024

Hopefully with the log information attached, it is possible to determine what
causing the current behavior, so with the next openSUSE version the installer
GUI is presented to the user.

Step to reproduce:
- power on system
- openSUSE boot prompt is shown
- select installation
- system boots from CD
- kernel is loaded
- after some time system starts to configure automatically, at this point the
screen turns black....
- with video=1280x1028 a GUI installer is provided to the user in the end.

The y2log-default-boot has been obtained, by typing various commands blind, to
be able to save the log....
