Black screen with an X instead of KDE
After installing SUSE10.0 on my laptop without any error messages I cannot start the kde!

There is the X in the center of the screen but the the system is frozen. Some weird artifacts are drawing dottet lines on the top 5% of the screen.

The setup determined my grafics card (ATI Radeon Xpress 200M) and my Display correctly.

I cannot help myself. What's wrong? Got anyone an idea?
And does openSUSE10.0 use xorg or xfree per default? might that be related to my problem? Argh!

Thanks in advance!

hello Dankmann78
try to start your laptop in runlevel 3 (no GUI)
or failsafe mode if it is easier for you
and login as root
run yast2
choose 'System' and '/etc/sysconfig Editor'
there 'Desktop' and 'Display Manager'
put kdm in DISPLAYMANAGER variable
put auto in KDM_SHUTDOWN variable
then 'Desktop' and 'Window manager'
put kde in DEFAULT_WM variable
Finish and close yast2
Restart the laptop.
This should be better.
I hope it will solve your difficulty.
