YAST does not load into the GUI and gives error saying that my system has less than 96 mb of memory even though it has more than that with 32 GB. This system is tested to work with Linux and other distributions with other installers work fine but anything with YAST gives this error on this machine. BIOS and error are attached below.

Just resetting PM/PjM-specific fields.

Paul, could you please attach YaST logs?

Please notice that the error message does not only say "less than 96 MB RAM", but also "or the X server could not be started". The problem may be the latter.
Comment 8 Stefan Hundhammer 2022-08-16 07:19:09 UTC
Also notice that the NCurses (text-based) front-end provides the same functionality, so this is a mere inconvenience; certainly not a MAJOR bug.

Closing because of no response. Feel free to reopen once the requested info is provided.
