    Default Errors reported in first 3 lines of boot dialogue on Lenovo W530

    Just purchased a used W530 from reputable dealer in Germany and am in process of setting it up.

    It came with Windoze 10 which I must keep for accounting software so I used windoze utility to resize partition and installed Tumbleweed 64 bit.
    All went well but I have a few strange issues:-
    When I first boot to Tumbleweed the login screen freezes and I have to use hardware button to start again. If the login password is accepted I then have to log in again. Then all proceeds as normal but in the first three lines of the loading script I see errors reported. Unfortunately they flash past and I would like to be able to post them here. Please could somebody help me find and view the relevant log so I can cut and paste.

    Another strange issue is the machine seems to know it is German even though I have all the settings for UK English, Time Zone, Keyboard. As a result the normal @ key comes out as " and vice versa which i am sure is the US or maybe DE keyboard.
    Any ideas.

    BTW and OT, the windoze program behaves in a more confused way with some prompts in English and some in German. I have upgraded the BIOS so will see if behaviour is the same but am posting in case I have overlooked the obvious and while waiting for windoze to update!

    Hi and thanks for that. Quite a lot there I have never looked at before. Solved the problem by selecting Lenovo keyboard so that issue has been fixed. Many thanks. Still getting the three or more error lines which is worrying and still having to log in twice. Will post again.

    ... never mentioned which desktop you are using, AFAICS, but did you try a different Display Manager to see if the problem persists?

    Hi, many thanks for the reply. I have been using the KDE desktop. The log in problem has now gone but the subject errors still there. Will try another desktop and report back. If anybody has time to look at it I could post the last startup log as there are more errors there, none of which mean much to me but some suggest missing components.
    Where is the preferred place to post files?

    ... I did not suggest trying a different desktop, but a different display manager.

    For example, if using KDE's Plasma5, the default Display Manager is probably SDDM.

    If the log in problem returns off & on, you could try changing the Display Manager from SDDM to KDM. I believe you would need to install KDM from the openSUSE repos first, though.
