    There could be a lot of reasons. Enter your root password and then try :

    rcxdm status

    If it says it is unused then try:

    rcxdm start.

    If it starts that this means for some reason the xdm is not set to start in the current runlevel. You could also enter yast (text mode) and check what runlevels are set for xdm in System-System Services (Runlevel). Select xdm then check the Export mode. You will be able to see the selected runlevels for xdm.

    If it doesnt start then check /var/log/messages to see what happends.
    tail -f /var/log/messages
    You can intrerupt viewing that log by pressing CTRL+C.

    If all those doesnt help you then come back with more details.
