    Default openOffice shut down when started and force a new log in


    I have never used Linux before. First time. I have burned a DVD with
    openSUSE 11.1 and used it for installation, using KDE. No problems until
    I tried to open the openOffice. Application starts with a grey frame
    with openOffice.org text , stays for a few seconds, thereafter screen
    turns black and a few seconds later I'm at log in screen. I type the
    password and get back in to dashboard again. This can be repeated over
    and over again. What's wrong ?

    Welcome to the SuSE Linux Forum.

    The post at the following has a number of suggestions.

    'NEWBIES - Suse-11.1 Pre-installation PLEASE READ - openSUSE Forums'
    (http://tinyurl.com/6jwtg9)

    Did you do a MD5 media check prior to install?
    You can check the media now using YaST --> Software --> Media Check

    Also, the monitor settings may be incorrect. These can be set using
    YaST --> Hardware --> Graphics Card and Monitor

    Good input, should have read before download and burning. I don't have
    the ISO image so I could only run the check on the DVD. I Boot from the
    DVD and choose "Check installation Media". Show "Linuxrc v3.3.22 kernel
    2.6.27.7-9-default" and "openSUSE-11.1, CD1"
    This resulted in the message "No errors found"
    It then took me to new installation where I did choose "Repair"
    System showed and repaired a few things and then said it is repaired
    and ok, theese were;
    - No valid fstab-post entry was found for the devices listed in table
    (listed was the SCSI-hard drive)
    - None verified packages ; cups, glibc-locale, hal, htp and postfix
    (they were re-installed ok)
    - start handle error identified (corrected)

    However , this didn't change the problem with openOffice, it is still
    the same. I found there is more of this because starting YaST it ask for
    password, I enter password and thereafter the screen goes black and I'm
    out. Have to log in again. How can I use YaST then ?

    that's really strange.

    try this:
    open up a terminal and write

    su -
    (enter admin password)
    sax2 -r

    check if everything is OK and press save

    After entering command sax2 -r a screen frame comes up "SaX211
    configuration"
    It shows the Graphic Card, Monitor, Mouse and Keyboard configurations.
    I run the test which was avaliable and it worked fine. All configuration
    data seems to be correct as far as I can see.
    I also did following, Software tab --> System --> configuration --> X11
    system (SaX2). This open the same frame as command "sax2 -r" did but in
    local language instead of English language.
    "Install software" also open OK (YaST2)
    I have gone through most of the installed stuff and most of them opens
    OK. The ones that do not are the following, (they are the ones which
    sending me out to the log in screen)

    1. YaST

    2. All openOffice (tried also quick start which said "Quick start mode
    not supported" and send me out)

    3. HP-toolbox

    It works , however there are discrepancies in the Monitor
    configurations.
    Basic info: This PC has run OK under Win2000 for some time.
    What did I do: I lowlevel formated the hard drive and re-installed
    Linux. I run it with the fail safe mode and found that it worked with
    YaST and also openOffice under failsafe mode. Re-started with normal
    mode and it all woked now also in this mode.

    The Monitor settings show strange things though. If anyone have any
    ideas where to look to find the reason for this it would be
    appriciated.

    SaX2 show 1280 x 1024 (16,7 M, 24 bit). When running the test before
    saving it shows 1024 x 768, 75Hz, 60 kHz. Looking in system
    configuratins --> Screen it shows "Default, 1024 x 768 (72,0 Hz)
    ???????
