I've got a strange problem with a SUSE Studio build I've done. It has downloaded and burned to DVD correctly. When I boot to it (live DVD with installer) on the hardware, it will error out when launching Firefox or any parts of YaST (not things like the Virtual Machine manager which are separate). When I boot it in VirtualBox (from the DVD, not the ISO), it works perfectly. I haven't seen any other problems with it on the hardware other than the ones mentioned above. Anyone got any ideas? Thanks.

This is the error message produced by YaST:
  1. sbin/yast2: line 423: 5057 Illegal instruction $ybindir/y2base $module "$@" "$SELECTED_GUI" $Y2_GEOMETRY $Y2UI_ARGS

And Firefox produces this when run from the terminal:
  1. Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0".
  2. *** nss-shared-helper: Shared database disabled (set NSS_USE_SHARED_DB to enable).

I wonder if "Illegal instruction" refers to something to do with memory or the kernel?

It's very strange indeed.
