I just installed Suse 9.3 64 bit and the installation went seamlessly. However, I didn't enable automatic login, don't know if that is why I am presented with a console login screen, but regardless, the passwords which I meticulously entered and wrote down [in large black marker characters
], are not working. Or perhaps I'm doing something wrong: there is first a prompt to enter a user name, at which I type the user name I created, then hit enter. Then follows a prompt for a password, and I type in the password, hit enter, and it tells me the login has failed. I tried logging in as root, but same thing, no good. I know I am typing the same passwords I created earlier, particularly as I had to enter them each twice, and carefully, in order that they would match.
Aside from not being able to get into the system, it would also be nice to have a graphical login screen. Any help anyone can provide will be greatly appreciated!
