I rebooted and now the login screen is in some kind of black and white instead of being all colorfull like the first time I booted up.
Unless your hw isn't b0rked I would say this is a result of having upgraded the kernel or the X.
The solution is very simple. Get root and run Sax2
, SUSE's handy GUI GFX-setup tool:
Just follow the instructions and everything should be fine, you will get your kewl framebufferd consoles back and of course the graphical desktop.
Then when I log in, the is no way shut down, restart or anything other than log out.
This is natural: You cannot issue a shutdown command if you aren't logged in, and you can't also shutdown or reboot w/o knowing which command to use:
shutdown -h now (shutdown / HALT the system)
shutdown -r now (reboot)
Also when I try and watch a movie clip it locks up. WHAT IS GOING ON!!!
I don't understand this. You are watching movies w/o a graphical environment? Or do you mean *before* the GUI b0rkage?
If the latter is the case it's probably a side-effect of having the wrong GFX drivers installed. Once you set it up properly with Sax2
this should also get fixed.
I am using a 2.4ghz celeron with 1gb of ram. I could tell more but I don't feel it is necessary.
It's OK for now, telling which distro yuo are using is normally enough. But if the problem persists I would suggest posting the files /home/YOURHOME/.xsession-errors
and also the output of the command startx
or the file /var/log/X
