shutdown / restart XServer

When I try to shutdown - nothing happens (the login box disappears) but the background colour remains. The same happens when I try to restart X.
I'm using SuSE 7.3 Pro

How are you trying to kill X? If you login normally, then try pressing CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE.

If this doesn't work, you could try openining a console and typing init 3
