I would try reinstalling X-server, Mesa, & video driver rpms and see if that catches it. I don't often suggest the m$ solution but it seems like a good idea this time. If you remove the X-server, it may offer you to remove all the 'dependencies' and that would do it for you. Then update.

You might have to reformat your hard drive and reinstall SuSE, because a file system, by definition, is the data that formats your hard drive and allows you to store data on it. If it's corrupt, it will get even more corrupt if you keep writing to it, eventually leading you to an unbootable computer. Please reformat and reinstall before you end up at that stage (and PLEASE use ReiserFS or BTRFS instead of Ext4, as Ext4 cannot handle large files without getting corrupted).

Agree with Kenny. Proceed on the basis that your / filesystem is corrupt. If you never fsck'ed it, you may just have been stupid. If you were checking it, the drive could be dying.

A better idea is to mark the thread "SOLVED". See the tab on post #1
