    Default suse 8.2 hangs during installation

    Hi,

    during installation of Suse 8.2 on my notebook with Windows XP on the first
    partition the setup does not work: During system ysis the system hangs.

    If you go to another virtual console it can be seen, that "df" is eating up
    all CPU time. The system tried to mount /dev/hda1 -t ntfs, which is really
    mounted but seems not to be working. Why the hell does the setup mount this
    partition (in read/write mode! Thought, NTFS rw mode was experimental?)
    anyway?

    I read something in the Google archive of Suse 8.2 having an old NTFS
    driver. How can I load a new driver before installation? And why worked
    everything fine with Suse 7.3?

    Any help appreciated.

    A.

    .... in the section during the install where you can specify
    which filesystems to include at boot time, EXCLUDE the
    NTFS partition.

    also, you COULD kill the df process (although i'm confused
    why it "continues" to run)

    There is no such section. The one and only thing Yast asks is the language
    of the installation process. If I choose manual installation, I can add or
    remove kernel modules but then the problem is the same.

    It is not possible to kill the process! I tried every signal from 1 to 15!
    No chance! The disk does not making any noise, so I think, df doesn't do
    anything but hangs in a deadlock with the NTFS driver.

    I don't even know, why it TREIS to perform a df on an NTFS partition! Is
    there any kernel parameter, where I can specify the partion which should be
    used for installation?

    I never had so much troubles with all my previous Linux-installations :-(

    .... might do a "ps -auxf" and see who owns it.
