login to root goes to yast
i tried finding help in other areas for this problem, but it seems that none are of much help. I am dual booting windows xp and suse professional 9.1...i have only one user (myself) and the root. when i login as myself and try to switch users to login as root, i put in root as user, and type in the correct password...and i go straight to YaST! (keep in mind that I have already made root unhidden).
i can access tty1-6 using ctrl+alt+F1-6 and when i try ctrl+alt+F7-12 i only get my session on F7 and the YaST screen on F8.
when i go to tty1 (the somewhat graphical terminal) i am confronted with
