On my Desktop I am experiencing a very weird behavior. First of all, I would like to mention that I am posting from the very same machine…just under Windows (which tends me to roll our hardware issues).
Next, a short history
I installed 11.2 on my machine when it came out last year.]I upgraded my hardware (new mainboard, cpu, …) without reinstalling. Everything went fine]I upgraded to KDE 4.4…still everything ok*]I did a system upgrade to 11.3 final using zypper
And there it starts. After the upgrade, the first boot didnt work as expected (the system just hang). So I just did a restart and 11.3 was up and running. Now, since last week, I cannot boot my system at all. The screen just shows me the boot-splash but the progress bar isnt moving a thing. So I started with the option splash=verbose which did not show me a single line of output. The system just hangs right after the GRUB selection occured.
So I decided to download 11.3, burn it to a disc and reinstall it. Well…this doesnt work either!
At least it shows me some lines of output, which look fine, but some lines after starting KDM the screen goes black and thats it.
The only way I got something was when I started the installation in Textmode. I was able to log in but I dont know what to do then. I ran yast2 but it didnt look like I could install the system that way.
Can anyone help me out please? It would be nice to get it running with my home-partition still in place.
