10.3 is still in beta, isn't it? Suse's beta releases sometimes tend
toward wonkiness, and occasionally the finished product has faults it
ought not to have. But I've found 10.2 to be very stable, so maybe 10.3
will settle downfairly soon.

Hopefully the problem you had with installing is just a temporary one -
could be the repos were in a state of flux at the time. Why not wait a
while and give it another try?
