OpenSUSE Install :: Not Getting KDE Boot - Login Screen / Fix It?

Feb 6, 2010

I've been running openSUSE 11.2 within a VM using VirtualBox 3.1.2 with Vista x64 as the host OS for quite some time now with good results. Yesterday I went to reboot the VM and VBox made some comment about 3D not working and needing to install the VBox guest additions (which were already installed). After rebooting and seeing the openSUSE splash screen, I now get a solid purplish display with no activity. I've tried running "sax2 -r", re-installing guest additions, running the repair CD, and other things but this problem has not gone away. Aside from reloading the OS, does anyone have ideas on how I might fix this?

OpenSUSE Install :: Boot Goes To X-Windows Login Screen Instead Of Xfce?

May 12, 2011

My default desktop environment is Xfce 4.7 (older machine). Monday I came back to work to discover a 17 GB log file in /var/log that ate up my root partition and gave me trouble running. I deleted it, which solved the problem EXCEPT that now when I boot, instead of the Xfce login prompt, I get an X-Windows login prompt. This takes me to a terminal (which apparently reads my .zshrc file), from which I can start an Xfce session by running xfce4-session. How can I get back to booting into the Xfce login screen?

OpenSUSE Install :: Login Screen Keeps Bouncing Back To Login Screen

Sep 17, 2010

I have installed VirtualBox and setup a Windows Vista host, initially with a .vdi of 10gb. That filled up quickly, so I added another 20gb secondary partition, after first trying to allocate a .vdi to a SCSI controller. Configured the drive in Windows (Computer Management), and all seemed ok. I shutdown VB, and rebooted my Linux host (openSuse 11.3). Now I keep bouncing back to the login screen, and can't login to Linux KDE, but can login to a console.I do have the following info:

/dev/dis/by-id/ata-ST9250410ASG_5VG0B5VS-part5 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/dis/by-id/ata-ST9250410ASG_5VG0B5VS-part6 / ext4 acl,user_xattr 1 1


I did see a message before, that I don't see anymore, that said it could not start NFS services due to missing entry in fstab. Another I'm seeing now is it couldn't start the avahi-daemon, no space left on device. This is odd, since I have a 200GB drive, with half of it left, only max 30GB set to VB. Here's my df -k output:

/dev/sda6 Use% is 100%
devtmpfs Use% is 1%
tmpfs Use% is 1%
/dev/sda7 Use% is 46%

So root "/" is mounted on /dev/sda6, which looks like it could be a problem, but why would this suddenly be a problem after working with VirtualBox? Could this be a matter of just freeing up space on /dev/sda6? Like the /tmp folder that's under "/"?

OpenSUSE Install :: Crash Back To Login Screen After Login?

Feb 3, 2010

The graphical login screen is loaded just fine. Though very shortly after (a moment after the loading screen could be seen) it crashes back to the graphical login. And that happens no matter what wm I'm trying - gnome, kde3, kde4, e16, e17, even twm.

It happened after the logout after a zypper up yesterday morning. Looking through the list of what packages were upgraded (two machines, both last zypper up'ed last Sunday, checked on the second one after the problem with the first one), the only packages which might be responsible are kwin or qt4.

The graphics card seems to be fine (NVidia 9600), as it happens whether or not I use nv or the propietary driver. Also tried reinstalling it from the repo as well as using the binary blob from NVidia. Has been tested on Windows and games are running fine there, so it shouldn't be the card.

What is strange, is that when calling upon sax2 -r from runlevel three, the initial screen loads nicely, but sax2 crashes back to the cli once one presses 'Change Configuration'. No error messages are being printed.

Any pointers on how I can narrow down the cause (and get it fixed)?

OpenSuSE 11.2 + KDE 4 factory & enlightenment & qt 4.6 repos
X.Org 7.4-35.3
Kwin 4.3.98-406.6
libqt4 4.6.1+4.6.20100202-1.1

OpenSUSE Install :: Don't See The Login Screen / Get A Screen With Squares And Rectangles

Mar 27, 2011

I installed opensuse11.4 few minutes back. The install was absolutely smooth. I have dual boot, Win Xp and 11.4 now. But for some reason I do not see the login screen but instead I see a green screen with squares and stripes. Login in the failsafe mode is successful. How do I fix it?

Also noticed the following,

1) Initially the splash screen picks up the right resolution 1024*768 and then it changes it to a higher resolution. This I think I can fix, because I had faced a similar problem with 11.3 as well.

Graphics Card: GeForce 7025/ nForce 630a.

OpenSUSE Install :: Cannot Login After Screen Display

Apr 23, 2011

i installed opensuse 11.4 on my laptop (Lenovo T60, Mobility Radeon X1400). It worked fine for some weeks, the first problem that I found was that libreoffice did not work. Calc crashed immediately (screen looked "destroyed", only the panel was really visible, but the system seemed to work so I could log out without alt+ctr+del), writer had the problem after opening some menu options. Now (one week later) after start and login I could not see the panels anymore, I could start programs but those would not be displayed, I only saw the desktop. After restarting, I cannot even log in anymore, the screen looks destroyed as with libreoffice. I created a new user, this works and this is from where I write.

Ubuntu Installation :: Start The PC And Boot From The CD, Getting A LOGIN Screen Instead Of The Regular Option To Install From CD?

Jul 21, 2010

Got it on a CD and was using it as "Try Ubuntu" instead of installing it for good (I still wanted to see if there were memory issues or HDD issues with my desktop, before I installed it for good).Anyway, I would shut down the pc after about 2 or 3 days and redo the CD install (try ubuntu option) again and add all the plugins etc.Kids used this for playing some games on friv or nickjr.The real issue - of late, when I try to start the PC and boot from the CD, I am getting a LOGIN screen instead of the regular option to install from CD or Try the Ubuntu.

OpenSUSE Install :: Username Order On Login Screen In 11.2?

Dec 2, 2009

I just moved from openSUSE 11.0 to 11.2.

While I like to new login screen (I was using a face based theme previously), I am stumped on how to control the order that the user names are presented.

As best I can tell, they are presented in the order who logs in most frequently. While that makes a certain amount of sense, I would like to be able to force the list to remain alphabetical.

Is there any way to control this, and if so, where?

OpenSUSE Install :: White Display After Login Screen

Dec 29, 2009

This is the 2nd time this has happened. I installed 11.1 & 11.2 later. After the install I would get the login screen just fine and then when it starts running everything goes white. It is an issue with compiz and my graphics I assume. The interesting part is in opensuse 11.0 I had all compiz items not installed. When I installed 11.1 & 11.2 they reinstalled. For next time is there a way to not have these installed on the install? What I had to do was login in a different session other than Gnome. Then go into yast and remove compiz. Then logout and log back in with gnome and the white screen is gone.

OpenSUSE Install :: Black Screen Instead Of Login Manager

Jan 4, 2010

I'm having a rather peculiar problem booting into openSUSE 11.2. After the installation (which goes fine), i get a black screen and my system freezes.

In detail, I can see the splash screen and booting details, but at the moment I am supposed to see a login manager, i just get a black screen. Sometimes it has a cursor indicator in the top left, sometimes it doesn't. Same thing happens in failsafe mode too.

This happens over and over, no matter which installation type I choose, 32bit or 64bit, KDE/Gnome/XFCE.

My problematic box is:
AMD Athlon 3200+ 64bit
ATI Radeon x1950pro <-- which I believe might be causing all these issues.

OpenSUSE Install :: Login Screen Freezes Immediately

Jul 1, 2010

I installed openSUSE 11.2 on my Compaq 2170US laptop. When I select it from the grub menu, everything acts normally until the login screen, which freezes immediately (i.e. before I can select my user account or type in my password).I installed from the full openSUSE DVD and chose the GNOME desktop. Before installing, I took openSUSE for a test drive with the GNOME LiveCD and everything seemed to work fine.

OpenSUSE Install :: Doubled Login Screen In Different Resolutions

Jan 24, 2011

One day, when I switched on my notebook Lenovo X400 with Suse 11.3 I observed that the graphical login screen is divided vertically into two equal parts - each in different resolution. There are also two mouse pointers. They work simultaously (eventhought I can see only a half of each). The problem is that when I login there is no effect, it goes back to login screen. I can login into text terminal. But if I go to "init 3" I still can not startx and the next time I reboot the same problem comes again. Shall I somehow reconfigure X windows or method of logging in?

OpenSUSE Install :: Encrypted LVM LUKS And Login Screen

Apr 2, 2011

I recently installed OpenSUSE 11.4 64 bit with GNOME yesterday and everything is going fantastic. I like it much better than Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit Maverick Meerkat because it is much more stable, reliable, and dependable. I own a heavily modified ASUS N61JV-X2 notebook PC. I installed OpenSUSE using the LVM based method and LUKS encryption. When I turn on the power to my notebook PC, it asks me for my password to decrypt my Intel 2nd Generation 160.00 GB Solid State Drive. I expected this behavior. However, I never get to see the OpenSUSE login screen. After I type in my password to decrypt my SSD, it loads up the desktop immediately. How do I configure my OpenSUSE so that I can see the login screen so that I can select my standard user profile and enter the user password to login?
