Can't get SUSE 12.1 or 11.4 to work on my new laptop help
I got SUSE 12.1 - 64bit to work flawlessly on an older laptop I got about 3 years ago, but it will not work on my new laptop I just bought. Also Ubuntu will work on my old laptop but it will not work on my new laptop as well. I tried installing SUSE 11.4 - 64bit on the new laptop as well since I read it was more stable then 12.1, but still same issues I am running into.
SUSE will lock on the autoconfig install and only after restarting it over and over again does it sucessfully install. Once installed it is extremely buggy and often will freeze.
I have tried using the options acpi= off apm=off nolapci and have tried booting into failsafe only for the OS to freeze on me after using it for 10 minutes. I also tried adding to the boot options b43.blacklist=yes and that did not work either.
Here are my laptop specifications:
