New member here. I’m not a Linux expert so bear with me. For info, I want to run the Rockstor OS directly from a USB drive on a Microserver Gen7 (N54L).
I was successful in creating a new Leap 15.2_x64 installation .iso file following the “Based on openSUSE” recipe.
I was able to install the OS on another USB drive from an old laptop I have so I know the installer works. That was in UEFI mode.
But running the installer on the N54L fails every time.
Tried regular install several times and it always freezes around operation [20.xxxxxx] (it varies).
Here are some examples of the last line being displayed before it freezes:
“Stopped target Switch root.”
“Started Dispatch Password Requests to console Directory Watch.”
“Mounting POSIX Message Queue File System…”
“Set up automount Arbitrary Executab■rmats File System Automount Point.”
Also tried in Failsafe Mode. It gets farther down past operation [41.xxxxxx] before it hangs at:
“Adding 2097140k swap on /dev/sda3. Priority:-2 extents:1 across:2097140k FS”
It looks like it gets stuck right after creating the swap partition.
The installer never gets to the System Locale selection screen. Could it be a video driver issue?
The BIOS on the N54L seems to run only in Legacy mode. Can that be a problem with the current installer that seems to be made to run in UEFI mode only?
I think I read somewhere that a lot of Rockstor developers own a G7 so maybe somebody can chime in and help me out?
I’m sure there’s a possible fix to my problem. Maybe going with an older kernel with Leap 15.1 instead?
I would really appreciate a push in the right direction.
Thanks in advance!
