I installed SuSE 9.3 on a gateway E-3400 gateway 1gig pIII, 256Mmem. All went well during the installation and everything worked well. Now that the installation is finished the system rebooted and I get the green screen that lets you boot 9.3, floppy or in failsave. Then I get the green screen initializing hardware, I esc out and see what it is really doing and the last thing I see is Starting mail services. At this point the monitor acts like it is not getting power from the graphics card. I can go to another system and ssh to the unit and login fine (I can't configre telnet yet). When I run the command reboot on the host I have ssh'ed to the SuSE box the monitor on the SuSE box comes up with the green screen and tells us the System is shutting down.
Now to go back a step, if I boot from the failsave mode I get a login prompt and all is well. I have not yet figured out how to enambe telnet with out x.
I am looking to find out what the graphics card is to see if I need a driver but if anyone knows why this is happening please let me know.
