I finally made the swap from Windows to OpenSuse (on my PHP devlopment machine) about 2 weeks ago after testing more than 5 distros and I love it. I’m currently running KDE 4.6.5 unless it was updated today.
This morning I installed the latest updates and then turned off. When I got back from work I cannot login to a KDE interface. I type my details in and the curser changes for a second or so but then nothing happends. I can login without a GUI but my knowledge of the linux shell is lacking (although getting better!).
I don’t really want to resinstall so thought I would ask for advice here first. I’m running lamp if this helps at all.
Any information you guys need then please feel free to ask. P.S. I know I shouldnt really be running tumbleweed but I really like the latest updates and don’t mind tinkering.
Unfortunately “mv .gnupg OLD.gnupg” did not work (it ran fine though) so I decided to reinstall. I took the opportunity to change some partition settings and have a cleaner install as messing around trying to get VMware installed did me no favours.
Just tried to install the new ATI 11.7 drivers (has anyone got these working with Tumbleweed?) with a 5870 but they didn’t work. Can someone give me a command to view my current installed driver. Sorry if I’m partying to much from the original topic!
Yes, finaly, in Tumbleweed (64) is something wrong with package “gpg2” with build date 2.8.2011. Login is succesfull only when dir .gnupg is deleted. After downgrade to gpg2 from openSUSE standard repo login is back as previous.
I had this issue this morning after applying automatic updates, although I was prevented from using any of my installed desktop environments except GNOME 2. By updating libassuan and gpg (and making sure that they were installed from the Tumbleweed repos) as Knurpht suggests, the issue was resolved.
