I have a 64 bit laptop with OpenSUSE 13.2 that I can’t login on my account. The OS boots up normally but when I attempt to login the green screen goes blank after a few seconds and there is no apparent way of getting out. The laptop is setup to use Gnome. So here are some description of my laptop:
NVIDIA GEFORCE 610M 2GB
Intel Core i5
I accessed to the filesystem from the terminals (Ctrl + Alt + F#) with the purpouse to install the KDE Enviorenment with yast2 --ncurses, but the only thing that happens is that the packages are downloading but are not installed. Also, I can’t update or refresh any repository … always I get some error message from the synchronization paths of the repositories.
OK, if you press the esc key during boot you should get some additional info, else as a temporary fix to access the net is to switch to wicked via yast (not yast2) the ncurses version for internet access and try a zypper ref and zypper up.
You don’t need the -ncurses parameter. I don’t think it hurts but it is not needed yast will start in ncurses mode
It looks like thing stopped before network was established. Are you using WIFI? it is always best to use hard-wired when trouble shooting
Did you try booting to recovery mode? Select advanced at grub menu and select the second selection. Note that you won’t be able to start gnome but it should allow you to log into any other desktop. Gnome is very picky
You do know that if you did a default install your home partition contains all your data. If you used a full DVD ISO you can do an upgrade. Yes 13.2 to 13.2 this will by default save your data and preserve any installed software. You do have to re download most of the updates. You can also do it from a Live DVD ISO but you must take control and tell the installer NOT to format the home partition but simply mount it as /home. You Do have to understand your system more then an update and point the installer to the proper partitions.
Hmmm maybe you were bit by the recent bug in an update. It was pulled quickly but some got it. A zypper up may fix the problem if you are connected.
Note do not install NVIDIA driver until you correct the connection problem at least
