Re: [opensuse-factory] Lenovo T410s (11.2 black screen in runlevel 3, 5)

I tried this ISO: openSUSE-NET-x86_64-Build0577-Media.iso

I'm not sure exactly where the installation failed, but the
installer dropped to the curses based interface at some point and
declared that the installation had failed. I will install again (as
I can snatch time today) and try to produce a better report.

What might be useful information?

: It would be interesting, which kind of graphics card this machine
: has (just "lspci -n|grep 0300; lspci|grep VGA", not the full
: hwinfo/whatever).

This was the output of: lspci -vns 00:02.0
