    Try opening a terminal and trying the ncurses-based yast.

    Sorry, ncurses-based, means the terminal version. Open up a terminal and type:

    yast

    No, you should be able to install or fix problems from the terminal based yast, so that you can get back into a gui.

    Why can't you get into a gui. When you first boot your computer, what happens?

    Can you try typing "kdm" from a terminal? Will that load kdm, or does it crash? Does it load, but only to a black screen?

    What about running "startx" ?

    Everything is working fine.
    When i boot computer,no errors.boot fine.
    Then Login as my username without any problem.
    I am using gnome not kdm.
    Everything is working.every software is running well except Firefox.it crashes most of the time.so alternatively i am using Flock.Today i tried to open yast to install some software from software management.but after entering password nothing appear.
    No black screen,desktop is there.
    One thing i note.some time the software updating failed when i boot pc.Not sure about that,why its crashing.

    What about if you use a terminal as su and type in yast2 (the gui yast). Do you get any errors showing up?

    linux:~ # yast2
    ALSA lib control.c:909snd_ctl_open_noupdate) Invalid CTL front:0
    ALSA lib control.c:909snd_ctl_open_noupdate) Invalid CTL front:0
