    He, that's not the openSUSE version, that's the kernel version probably,
    and an old one.

    You can look up the actual version with this command:

    Code:
    cat /etc/os-release
    cat /etc/SuSE-release

    Really need more info. can you boot to using recovery mode? That is usually in the advanced in the boot menu. But we are not sure what version of openSUSE you are using so it could be different.

    Are you dual booting with Windows if so which version?

    In any terminal you can get to - but if the machine does not boot...

    You can try if it will boot in failsafe, or else, you will have to boot
    any Linux live CD you have around, mount your system disk (if the live
    CD is a graphical one you can do that easily, just as with your real
    system), open whatever file browser it has, navigate to the requested
    file, and open it with any editor you have...

    The version number probably relates to 3.4.11-2.16 kernel (associated with openSUSE 12.2). Try to boot in recover mode as gogalhorp suggested. Any difference?

    Pure guess that you had a kernel update and need too reinstall the video driver.

    Also could be that the failed drive caused the boot to abort.
    Boot to a DVD version and do a
    fdisk -l
    (that is a lower case L not a one)

    at a terminal as root
    note the ID's of the drives then look in the /etc/fstab on the boot drive. Note you will have to mount the boot partition to see it. Don't check the one from the DVD

    If the mount points don't correspond to the ones in fdisk manually fix the table so that the drive ID's match

    Then reboot and see if that works

    You really need to supply more info. Basically saying it is broken does not help us help you. I'm just guessing above
