    Okay, well the first log (without nomodeset?) shows that the fbdev (basic framebuffer) driver is being used. There is no reference to the nouveau driver being available or used. The second log shows that the vesa driver was loaded instead. I note that in both cases there is a line which mentions the presence of xorg.conf
    Code:
    [    28.177] (==) Using config file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf"
    Are you running this as a virtual machine guest? I don't see any reference to NVIDIA graphics hardware in the first log.

    Then my thoughts are that you need to submit a bug report.

    Maybe Suse get's confused by the on board GPU. The mother board has an onboard GPU ( a sis one ), but i installed the Nvidia on the AGP.

    That is the xorg.conf.install file, used during installation. Did you rename it? (It is safe to delete).

    removing xorg.conf cause X to not start. Yes the xorg.conf is that one from the install. I did a cp xorg.conf.install xorg.conf in order to see if there was a better color depth\resolution.
    This is startx without xorg.conf

    Were you trying startx as root? (You can no longer do this by default).
