Exclamation Boot Problem (suse 82)


Well, I haven't checked this again but
on my first install of 8.2 with net working,
I pressed the off button on my comp instead of the shutdown via linux
Shut down , and when I turned the computer back on it booted in txt mode, and KDE would not start !

any fixins ?
I did not try this again, as it made me uninstall the partion and re-install to get it working .

so im not messing with it , im going to leave it on always.

unless I get a fix.

" im going to leave it on always."

Just shutdown with the shutdown command and you won't have any problems.

Does it get to the login prompt or does it say something about kernel panic?

If you are getting a login prompt but no X login you probably just need to run the X configuration again. Login with root at the console and they do "sax2" this will run the X configuration for SuSE. Then do a proper shutdown.

It leets me login, but it doesn't load KDE,
it says things like: KDE panic, and it says files not found , and then X server something !

it then goes to text and says:

Linux Login:
then
Linux Password:
HAve FUn
(even if you enter the wrong password)
then the only command I can use is YAST
if i type kde, it says above.!
