    Default opensuse leap 15 install flashing login text

    Upgrade from leap 43 to leap 15
    Now I cannot login anymore no gui and flashing login text.
    How to solve this , Ctrl+F1 or Ctrl+ F2 to stop and get in text mode does not work.
    Need to start Yast in text mode because I think nvidia needs reinstalled.

    Reboot.

    Hit 'e' on the boot menu. Scroll down to find the line that begins "linux" (or maybe "linuxefi")
    Append " 3" to the end of that line. Continue booting. That should take you to text mode.

    I'm not sure what you got wrong, because I wasn't there to watch.

    The '3' isn't a command. It is a kernel option appended to the end of the line that loads the kernel. So it should not give that error if you did it correctly.

    As far as I know, you could even put a nonsense word there, and the kernel would just ignore it, but show it in the boot command line in case other commands are looking for it.

    In this case it should indicate to boot to level 3, which is a command line boot instead of a graphic interface boot.

    Just placed a 3 at the end of the line 1 which starts with linux. Not working no text mode the command login keeps flashing. Never seen this before. Gpu is nvidia geforce 1050t

    ... just to be sure: You went to the line that starts with linux, then hit the End key to get to the end of the line? It wraps, so it is necessary to hit the End key. You also need to add a space before the 3.

    Yes I did that.
    I now only get a black screen with a flashing monitor light . Nothing works. Only ctrl alt del to restart. Upgrading is again not a good idea when using opensuse. Think I have to do a new install unfortunately.

    Try Alt-F1 or Ctrl-Alt-F1.

    Alt-F1 or Ctrl-Alt-F1 did nothing.
    Switched to onborad AGO rebooted and I am now in Yast text mode trying to solve the problem.
