Computer freeze after graphical login and comand line login


Sorry If this is in the wrong section. I don't think that it should be in general section but I don't know. I am running SUSE 10.0. I have just installed a new big CRT monitor. So I went to YAST ran sax2 and altered my screen resolution. Rebooted and loged in again. All good. Proceeded to do some work. I log out. Then I come back after dinner and when I go to log back in (at a graphical login) the computer freezes at ( sorry I don't know the technical term) splash screen bit of KDE just before all of the icons start flashing. I kill X and try and log in to just a commmand line. After my password the screen freezez for a bit and then splurges out loads of stuff some thing like grep 'argument too long' again and again. I tried booting with the instalation cd and going to repair. The system identified that when checking installed packages that postfix was diffrent and needed to be reinstalled. I let it repair it and the repair program gets stuck on SUSEconfig.kdm3 so I leave it over night but it is still stuck. As am I. Does any one have any ideas of what to do or look at to try and hunt down the problem?

P.S. I just remembered I did alter one thing when I was working. I added /opt/gcc33/lib/ to /ect/ld.so.config then ran ldconfig as root. I did this becuse a fortran program I had brought home from work to add to would not run as it could not find the libaries it needed. Could this have screwed things up. I have a knopixx CD I could try and put in and remove that line tonight? Any help will be greatfuly recived.
