    Hi
    So still haven't had info on the switch to root user.... If you open a terminal and then just use su - (enter password) then try the zypper rm command. Please post the output from the screen.

    Opened Terminal in super user mode tried the command
    Code:
    Password:  
    linux:~ # zypper rm drm-kmp-default                                   
        *** Access denied ***
    linux:~ #
    Which failed but then tried on my system to add the tree program right after this and all worked perfectly. In the mean time I had her start Linux as per previous post to init 3 mode and she got to command mode where we discovered that testdisk recovered her files to her $home/recovered folder. Where she had 21GB of 99GB used and now has 99GB of 99GB used. Obviously, if total space on the hdd is used there is no space left for the system to use.
    As she was doing recovery I had told to her to use df to monitor free space which she finally admitted she didn't use.

    I am hoping we can move the roughly 77GB to another user-partition probably in stages and hope no system damage has occurred. It can be difficult when you aren't given correct information in the first place. My appologies to all. Leap 42.3 and KDE were not at fault here they did just what the user told them to do -- ie: use all available space!

    On my system, I am wondering if drm-kmp-default is somehow locked from being accessed since zypper seems to be able to add update or remove other packages.

    Don't know where I was exactly when I was setting stuff up but do remember at one point being asked what partitions to include in indexing, and I unchecked sda5 - NTFS, sda6 - NTFS and left sda1 - / indexed

    It could be the backported drm kmp... is drm-kmp-default installed, if
    so remove that and see if it helps. If it does the zypper al
    drm-kmp-default it.

    Thank you so much, the command i needed was:

    Code:
    sudo zypper al drm-kmp
    I've been having this issue for a couple weeks and after running this line my issue is FINALLY resolved
