    If you could share what version of openSUSE you installed, whether you are dual-booting with any other OS, your video card, etc., that would help with suggestions as to what you should do next.

    Does /var/log/messages show any errors from the failed logins?

    i found the solution elsewhere
    a very strange problem but its to do with beagle..

    i logged in via root and removed beagle completely and it worked fine.. it was a permissions issue with beagle.. id like to get beagle back and running, maybe its a 0day error that the suse devs will fix..

    Glad to read you sorted it!

    Thanks for sharing your solution.

    IMHO beagle is not worth the overhead it causes. One of the things that I do, during the install while reviewing the openSUSE software selection, is to remove beagle. My PCs are already old enough, ... I don't need beagle slowing my system down further.

    You probably picked up a lot of Linux stuff while using Ubuntu, ... still, somethings are different on openSUSE, and in case it might be of help, here is a link to a top level description of some openSUSE Linux concepts:

    imho beagle is a hound that ain't worth shooting...so don't let it
    breath (or start)..

    Yep, even though Beagle has its uses for some, I find it more than I need. I prefer the extra speed. I am counted with the group that unistalls Beagle from a system right away.

    I am glad your issues was fixed by deleting Beagle. I was afraid you would have all sorts of problems with a video card. This was an easy fix!

    Same here. The first thing I do after an install is to delete beagle and install Google desktop.

    Can an op or something bump this post up? I had this same issue and was almost ready to remove Suse all together, I cannot believe this is what the problem was. Solution worked though.
