Problem starting KDE - xorg no displays found

You can divert the output of dmesg (or any other command line program) using >

dmesg > /media/floppy/dmesg.log
You could do the same when you try to start up kde, in this case use &>, which will direct both the output and errors to a log:

kde &> /media/floppy/kde.log
As far as the logs, the best thing to do would be to simply cp them to the floppy, as long as they're not too big to fit.

Thanks ZeromusM. I didn't have any critical files stored yet so I did a reinstall of OpenSUSE SLICK and it works just fine now. During installation I installed most of the updates and have had no problems with that (knock knock). If I get the same problem again I'll get back to this thread and post the errors.
