I ran rpm -Uvh --nodeps --force *.rpm as suggested in another thread with all the packages provided by suse..
It seemed to update.. things registerred as 3.2 BUT
When I restarted, in runlevel 5, it didn't boot to the gui login.. and when i logged in and ran startx I received an error stating, XIO : fatal IO error 104 (connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0" after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
When I run startkde the following comes up.
xsetroot : unable to open display ''
xset: unable to open display ""
ksplash: cannot connect to xserver
kdeinit : Aborting. $DISPLAY is not set
Warning: connect() failed: : No such file or directory
Error: Can't contact kdeinit!
startkde: Running shutdown scripts
Any thought or do i have to reinstall.. the thought is when stuff like this breaks it's an opportuinity to learn.. so i would appreciate any insight.
Nearest I can figure, something is screwed with my display entry in the XFree86config file.. but it all looks ok to me.
Thanks for your help.
