Get no login screen

I upgraded 42.2 to 42.3. I can log in remotely, but the console never shows a login screen. I get just a large grey arrow that responds to the mouse.
in the upgrade, at the end, I got an error message about the boot disk being listed twice in Grub.
on boot, I see
Bert: can’t request IOMEM region
How do I fix this?
Thanks for the help,

You’ll have to describe what method or guide you used for your upgrade.
In particular, did you follow one of the methods described in the SDB System upgrade?

Also, if you can post a screenshot, it might be helpful.
For now, your description sounds to me perhaps that you’re in an Openbox environment.


I put in the DVD, rebooted, and selected upgrade. The way I always do.

I have a Dell D11S with a Xeon and 32 GB memory

In the system log, I get

It could also be due to the Graphics driver. In Xorg.0.log, I get

    14.443] (EE) NVIDIA: Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module. Please see the    14.443] (EE) NVIDIA:     system's kernel log for additional error messages and
    14.443] (EE) NVIDIA:     consult the NVIDIA README for details.

I followed to install the latest drivers, and did NOT approve the experimental 3D ones. I have a Quadro K1200 GM107GL video card.

I fixed it!
The update did not update the NVidia drivers. Nor did zypper update, even though the Nvidia repositories are there. I fixed it by manually selecting update in the YAST Software Management screen under Nvidia.

Generally proprietary drivers are not upgraded since they are proprietary and openSUSE is open only. Note the name.
