Angry How do I uninstall/disable afstep

I have to guess what you,re problem really is even tough I have suse back from suse 7.3 Because kde started automatically
If I startup in the failsafe not
Because you only to this if a problem occurs if I have solved the
problem and I like start kde I use the command startx xsever started including kde

Or do you mean something else

Does suse boot into a graphical interface or are you at the command line?
I would suggest editing your ~/.xinitrc file, and put startkde in it
