I am trying to install Suse Tumbleweed. Once I finish the install the machine reboots and asks for my encryption key/password. After I enter the key it just drops me to a grub> terminal. I have installed it twice. Can anyone point me to what i am doing wrong? I choose KDE for the desktop both times, maybe I’ll try XFCE and see if it makes a difference.
I’ve had a similar experience recently. I’m curious what kind of hardware you have. I haven’t come up with a solution yet but it might help others.
not the newest hardware but I would think it should run fine on it.

I did try with XFCE for fun. It gave me a little more insight. At the end of the install it popped up and said failed to install the kernel. So that explains what I am seeing. But still not why. Maybe ill try in a VM on proxmox and see what happens there.
It would appear to me this version is broken. I tried in a VM and get a little further. It lets me unlock my encryption and then takes me to the normal login screen. After I login in there, it hangs for quite some time, then drops me to a shell…
