Since upgrading to openSUSE 12.3 (Dartmouth) (x86_64) with Linux 3.7.10-1.1-desktop and KDE 4.10.00 "release1" on an AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3200+, I usually boot into emergency mode! I don't think systemctl has ever failed me, but would be glad to escape this diversion, so would be grateful to anybody who can understand the following system boot log and advise me what I have to do to return to normal:
