if you expect serious help, you need to write serious posts. please try to use informative titles that give an insight into your situation, and try to keep the additional text formatting to a minimum... thanks.

So you are trying to log into KDE as root from the desktop manager - KDM. But you are logging directly into Yast - Yes?
Suse allows you to do that I believe.
Can you select a different session from the KDM menu.

This is not really a problem but a feature on SLES. Root is not supposed to login to a GUI session, so each time you try to login to KDE as root, YAST is automatically started and once you exit from YAST, the session is ended. Do you really need to login as root?

marwan_mostafa, please try to avoid posting in bold or centering your text because it makes it difficult for others to read your post. Please just use normal fonts and alignment like everyone else. Cheers.

On the KDM screen there is a menu button. Selecting that allows you to choose Session or Shutdown.

I don't know what selections you can make with Suse. Have a look at the Session menu and see what the alternatives are. Maybe there is a Yast session and you need to change that to KDE.
