    Default System down after installing Blender

    Hi,
    I installed Blender on my Suse 11 installation and it required Python 2.5 which I installed but now the system wont boot to a Gnome login, just goes to a basic Suse login and then does nothing?
    I think that Suse 11 may have had a later version of Python shipped with it - if so is there any way in which I can remove the 2.5 and install the default Python from the CD to get the system bootable again.
    I could re-install on the system partition but it means putting all the software back on again.
    Does anyone know a way to do it from the rescue prompt.
    Thanks

    You could use Yast from a console.

    At the OS choice screen of grub type `3` without the quotes and you will
    see it echoed on screen, Suse will then boot to a console login, login
    as root and run:

    yast

    from here you will get the ncurses version, use the tab key to navigate
    and re-install the original python packages or see if there are updated
    versions in the repos.
