Installed successfully. When the login screen appeared afterwards it froze and was scrambled. Rebooted into failsafe mode and was able to login successfully to the gnome desktop at 1680x 1050 which is my native lcd resolution. The video card was recognized in Yast. I went to IRC help for suggestions and someone suggested I update nvidia drivers. I did this through the 1-click Yast method and it installed. I rebooted and now right before it gets to login it fails and goes to command line.
I am still able to login successfully through failsafe without issue. Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot further or logs that might help? Or perhaps you realize what is going on, thank you!
