I recently installed the latest OpenSUSE 12.1 but ran into issues upon first boot.

The system installed just fine, but upon restarting the system, it would get to about 82% over all and 23% percent through one of the configuration settings before just freezing.

The whole system would freeze, i left it for over an hour, thinking it might be just a large file, But it didn't budge after an 1hr and 30mins, also the mouse didn't move.

I find these interesting because this has happened in the previous 11.4 at exactly the same place, percentages and all. and i just couldn't be bothered to work out the problem. But i am actually interested to run OpenSUSE.
