recently did a software update in Suse 10.2
New NVDIA drivers selected.
upon reboot I get the following error:
"xserver disabled restart GDM when configured correctly"
"Failed to start the x server ... It is likely that it is not set up correctly. Would you like to view the x server output to diagnose the problem?"

Found a thread that suggested to boot into failsafe mode, login as root and run SAX2, but it aborts out and says that it couldnt start the configuration server: /var/log/SaX.log
