    do you have ati/nvidia drivers installed ? if so, sometimes a kernel update can cause things to go pear-shaped. try re-installing the drivers

    not having an intel gfx card, i can only recommend re-installing the driver. you can start the ncurses version of YaST for that.use the tab,space-bar & arrow keys to navigate

    Do not know how to get yast. I only get the black screen and can type logon and password. Is there a repository or sth I could input to load the driver from internet? What do I have to input?

    once logged in, type su & press enter,it will ask for a password, type in root's password & press enter. back at the command prompt, type in yast & press enter, then navigate as i stated above

    First, let's check your kernel version. At the command line do:

    uname -r

    Are you quite sure that it isn't 2.6.25.9-0.2?

    The error messages indicate problems with the X drivers. From the command line as root do:

    zypper install -f xorg-X11-driver-video

    That will force reinstallation of the drivers to the set that match the kernel.
