Has anybody been able to install Milestone 5 on x86-64?

I'm pretty sure that
is preventing it, but maybe it's just my machine.

x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

so I guess it's your machine.

How did you install?
(Just that I can try to reproduce it. I tried a fresh install from

I did a net install with milestone 4, then did a

zypper dup

to get to M5, so I did not install straight from the M5 net install cd.

Sorry for the confusion this has caused.

This is my try to install/update M5 x86_64 via ssh:

eberhard:50 19:17:16 ~ # ssh turion

openSUSE Installation

- there are shells running on consoles 2, 5, 6, 9
- use 'extend' to load extensions (remove with 'extend -r'); extensions are:
o bind, gdb
- network setup: run, e.g. 'dhcpcd eth0'
- sshd: run 'rcsshd start' (don't forget to set a password with 'passwd')

Welcome to the inst-sys on 2.6.34-rc3-3-default x86_64

run yast to start the installation

Found a rxvt terminal on /dev/pts/1 (80 columns x 24 lines).

(D deprecated) defined() is not usually useful on hashes because it
checks for an undefined scalar value. If you want to see if the hash
is empty, just use if (%hash) { # not empty } for example.

Up to the message about line 67 happens very quickly (before and during the first YaST windows).

The "YaST got signal 11 at YCP file Packages.ycp:1428" happening is at about after klicking not to load the usb-storage module.

If I dont give the "acpi=off" grub parameter, the system freezes much earlier (before loading the installation system from network).
