I'm building an appliance via SUSE Studio. I've run the live CD iso in virtualbox. I have also burned the iso to DVD and ran it directly on my laptop. Both methods gave the same results, so I know it's not a virtualbox or computer issue.
It took three separate builds just to (finally) get it to load the GUI and get to the log in screen. I have linked to an image (below) so you can see what I see. The appliance just freezes with no mouse or tab response and the font (or lack there of I should say) on the user name and password fields are all little square zeros.

Just thought this same thing may have happened to someone. Thanks, Tim...
