does Ctrl+Alt+F6 still give you a command prompt? and could you do a search for the file 'kdm'? it should be in a bin directory like /usr/X11R6/bin. kdm is the login manager suse uses by default i think.

To do a search for it from a prompt, log in and then type " find / -name kdm "


later

Thanks, I can login, but the result for find/ -name kdm is:unknown file or map, when I use kdm ? the response is, only root wants to run kdm.

hmm its obviously there and executable then. you could locate it with the ' whereis kdm ' command, but if its coming up with that message it must be there. I think its probably a problem with your graphics drivers, or maybe X itself (but that would be strange if it is a fresh installation). What graphics card do you use? You could check the rpms to make sure X is installed and the packages are all there but i doubt they are the problem.

But,TYIS IS NEW HERE, I left the computer alone and more or less by accident I touched he keybord and the computer was working fine
For unknown reasons it takes allmost an hour after switching on for the computer to be ready for use, it will work than normally. I found in the start- up messages that the whaiting time for the DHCP server is very long, What did I wrong and how can I fix it?
