    Default failed on upgrading (12.3->13.1)

    I just followed the steps mentioned here: SDB:System upgrade - openSUSE to upgrade my opensuse 12.3 to 13.1
    after everything is done, the first time I log in to desktop environment failed. It just stuck there after I entered password, and could not get into KDE or other DE.
    Meanwhile, the mouse does not work either.
    I switched to command line interface, and I could log in, but I could not connect to internet and use zypper to manage my packages now...


    What can I do to fix this problem?

    Check your network first. Read the release notes, you may have two
    network interfaces, one old and not working, one new and not configured.
    Delete the first, configure the second.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Just a stupid question: how can I do this under command line?
    (btw, I am using a wireless card on my desktop machine)

    Use yast. It runs in text mode as well.


    Guessing. Maybe you were using network manager before, and you have to
    reconfigure it - which is impossible with no desktop. So change to ifup
    for the moment.

    I have a similar problem except mine gets to where the lizard and branch show up on the right hand side and then the screen just fades away then it shows a blank blue screen. I have no clue how to fix this at all.

    The command startx got the gui to work. I rebooted and didn't seem to actually fix anything but as long as it runs till I can get some help lol.

    Does "Recovery Mode" work? ("Advanced Options" in the boot menu)

    What graphics card do you have? Maybe installing a driver would fix your problem...

    Oh, and what display manager are you actually using? (apparently that fails to start, as you say "startx" works)
    If it's LightDM, that's a known problem (seems to be some race condition, so it does work sometimes/for some people, but sometimes not/not at all for other people).

    Set something else in /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager in that case (xdm should be already installed, but you could also install and set one of kdm, gdm, lxdm, ..., as well of course).
