No, it was always a 'user' problem. It was something I did in YaST while trying to remove the list of files in my OP above that were put in with 'dkms'.
I will likely never know what I did.

I don't think so, after issuing the 'startx' command everything was there.

I did that in ncurses YaST and it still would not boot into the users graphical interface. It just kept on stopping at the Login prompt like it was multi-user, but it wasn't.

I looked at finding out how to do that and couldn't. As I stated earlier, it was just easier for me to put in the USB stick and do an 'upgrade'.
