X Server fails to Start


I have successfully upgraded to 10.3 from 10.2. Everything was working well but after my last night's update, my X server is not working. Instead of the KDM login screen I am at the black login screen (shell). I tried to run the command X after log in from the prompt but getting the following error.

(EE) Module ABI major version (1) doesn't match the Server's Version (2)
(EE) Failed to load module "i810" module requirement mismatch (0)
(EE) Module ABI major version (0) doesn't match the Server's Version (2)
.....

There were more messages. Presently I am using a different OS to write this post so that I can reuse Linux. I have not made any change to xorg.conf or any other file. I also tried the command from the prompt,

X -ignoreABI

It also didn't work.

I am worried whether I need to reinstall everything. Please help me.

Thanks

Hi,
I have just spent hours on the same problem.
Ended up phoning SuSE tech support and he sent me through the same route:

as root: init 3
sax2 (you will need to wait a few seconds)
change configuration to something very common like
1024 x 768
test and SAVE
Drops back into terminal mode.

Reboot: shutdown -r now

back to terminal mode

(may need to start with init 5)

start with startx

When it is up and running I found that I cannot configure
the display size - there is a message saying that configurations
are not yet available. ???
Doesn't this sound like a BIG problem for SuSE?
Good luck,
Colin

I tried init 3 and then sax2. I am getting the following error :

xc : sorry could not start configuration server
xc : abort

Sax2 is not working. I also tried to run YAST from prompt so that I can reconfigure display, but that too is not working.

Edit : Please close this thread since I had to reinstall SUSE.
