    you need to go into YaST and disable repos numbered ...

    WAIT, that is such a mess i have no idea how you got that way or how
    you can even boot up..

    why are you accepting factory (BETA!! not ready for prime time)
    packages? are you a sofware engineer? a software tester?

    in this posting http://tinyurl.com/33xh7ld read very carefully the
    paragraph beginning with "IMPORTANT: Note repositories are in essence
    file servers on the internet"

    my question was not: Did you ask on any other forums? it was "have you
    googled to see if you are the only person with such a problem?"

    it sure does, because it tells us that your hardware is probably
    healthy...*and* it tells us your installed linux is SICK (when
    compared to the one on the Live CD which you can't setup wrongly
    because it boots from *read only* media)..

    having just looked at all the conflicting repos you have enabled i
    have to say i'm not at all surprised your install is sick..

    i *guess* if you set your repos to the magic four (oss, non-oss,
    update and packman) recommended by the sage geek named oldcpu and then
    in a root terminal do

    Code:
    zypper ref
    zypper dup
    you _might_ have a healthy machine again---however, since i do not
    know why you have been installing from factory i have no idea which
    (if any) really important bits you may have installed...so, my
    prescription *might* do more harm than good....be SURE to read my
    caveat (link in sig) because *your* machine and its usefulness to you
    is in *your* hands..

    Thanks for your advice. Believe it or not - I wasn't happy with these factory repositories. I once installed a factory version of ConsoleKit because it helped to fix a problem I was having. Then dependencies had to be resolved... and so on. My bad, sure enough.
    Deleting the unnecessary repositories and downgrading some packages did neither harm nor fix the system. So I guess I'll have to do a reinstallation. Last question: When I reinstall openSuSE - will it see the already installed user profiles and propose to use them?

    yes..but you say profile_S_, does that mean more than one user?

    well, it will "see" your /home and ask if you wanna use it, if you say
    yest then it will ask if you want to use it (one of them as
    yours)...you decide..

    and *IF* the borked part of your system is in your /home then you will
    still have the problems..

    HEY, before you do anything else go ahead and add a new user, then log
    out and into that new user and see if all is well...if so you know the
    hidden files in your non-working user is hash and those in your new
    working user are ok..

    see?

    Yes... rather unused... could as well delete them...

    Oh, I did that already. Problem persists. I even removed my main user from /etc/passwd just in case... no difference.

    hate to say that because it sounds so Redmonisk..

    The issue reported by joesse01 is exactly equal to mine .

    In my case the problem raised up after I made a dist-upgrade enabling Gnome:STABLE:2.28 and then reverting to official repos.

    Something get broken inside the files and I notice the same high resource consumption by gconfd-2.

    The only workaround I found useful has been by changing the "gdm" statement into /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager to "kdm".

    Doing this I am able to login through KDE greeter into my GNOME desktop without any problems.

    Soles boring things are that:


    1. I receive a request from Seahorse (the wallet manager) to input my password in order to allow networkmanager to proceed with the network connection
    2. when I want to logout I went switched back into KDE greeter since resulting impossible to logout/shutdown from inside GNOME.

    I attempted a lot of ways to recover my gdm without success so I think I will wait until 11.3 final be ready, then I will proceed with a system upgrade.

    EDIT:----- ups sorry, I didn't read the second page of the thread. But anyway, maybe that helps ... -----

    Your repository list looks really weird, you should try to clean that and than clean up your system. Looks like you are using packages from factory repository which is unstable - so now your installation is - guess what - unstable.

    If that is the case, look at
    Upgrade/Supported - openSUSE

    sorry I didn't found anything more specific but the idea behind that page is: get a clean repository list, than do an update with
    Code:
    zipper dup
    I am not sure if
    Code:
    zipper dup
    is the prefered way to get a clean system - maybe someone else cat tell!? ...

    cheers
