Hi TroN-0074,

Thank you for your valueable suggestion. This definitely be a useful link for me in future.
But for now i can't really upgrade this workstation and have to find a way to solve this.

And with Live CD ...GUI is working fine directly booted to GUI mode !!!!!

so what could be the problem here ????
Have you booted back to suse? What happens?

.X0-lock might be created by X (when you start it)

Hi sycamorex,

Yes, i booted back it to Opensuse and .X0-lock is there and not able to delete it.
End up with same situation again.

EDIT: late post, removed original contents

Would you mind posting the output of
# tail ~/.xsession-errors
for us? Maybe there's a clue there.
