Runlevel 5 in SuSE 12.1 on Acer Aspire One 722 not activated?

I got a brand new Acer Aspire One 722 with pre-installed Linpus. Which had not even installed X (and seems to be geared to "induce" customers to use windows).

So I got an Open SuSE 12.4_64 live and installed from that. So far I can boot but instead of the usual kdm login screen I come to a console login. After login, as root, I can issue a "startx" and things go as usual. The normal user is denied the pleasures of X. No startx and no init 5 -- the former due to a non-moveable Xorg.0.log the other because of "command unknown" .

I assumed that this is some systemd quirk and did some research. Since /etc/inittab says: "Please note that for systemd the symbolic link /etc/systemd/system/ has to be relinked to (e.g.) /lib/systemd/system/" I checked on that -- to no avail. Everything is as it should be.

Where do I look now? Any ideas are highly appreciated .
