if possible you should use a current operation system
SELD 11 is the current
ALSO "SUSE Enterprise Desktop " is NOT free .
You MUST buy a license from Novell !!!
install ( if possible ) the FREE and CURRENT OpenSUSE 12.2
I added new user using YaST and must have made error because now boots to CLI login.
suse has been a bit ( shall we say "ODD" ) with just HOW the run level setting is SET and just where it is set
3 for text and 5 for GUI
but the old seld 10 "should be in /etc/inittab
but one of the novell start up scripts might be overriding it
now HOW in the yast GUI did you add a new user ,and and WHAT user ?
if a normal everyday user there should not have been a problem
did you by chance DELETE the old user ?
posting the ERROR LOG or just reading the error log to see WHAT is there about the issue
the old SELD10 "should " have a command line test editor installed "nano"
Vi is a bit VERY complicated but usable for a novice
so AS ROOT log in using the text only boot
and navagate to the error logs
" cd == change directory "
"ls== a list command " to get the names in the folder
"boot.0.log == ??? should be the name of the boot log file "
--- or if nano is not installed
