motherboard: Asus M3N78-VM
graphiccard: Asus EAH4650/DI
CPU : AMD Athlon-64 X2 6000+
memory : 6 GB
system: : SuSe 11.1 with KDE 4.2
my Problem: if I start the system the Loginscreen appears, but after entering the password, there is only a textconsole. I must type: startx – :1 if I would use KDE. Has everyone the same Problem?
Does KDE actually start when you type startx?
Do you get any error in your startup log when you type in the following?
Try doing a graphics setup to use the vesa drivers?
sax2 -r -m 0=vesa
See if any of that helps. Mine starts up fine but I’m no guru
thanks, but sorry, it doesn’t work.
and with dmesg I’ve not seen any error.
with “startx – :1” all is ok, I’ve have then the KDE Desktop
When you see the grub menu try typing in
It will appear in the options line. That should start runlevel 5 and give you a KDE desktop.
Do a sax2 setup when you’re in and save it. Then restart. Might work that way.

Check “xdm” service is enabled (5:on) to start at booting up.
Open konsole and as root, run:
stthpc:~ # chkconfig -l xdm
xdm 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:off 4:off 5:on 6:off
Found this when I went looking for a cause for your problem. It was looking to me like OpenSUSE was running fine and the problem could be with KDE. I went looking in the KDE forums and found this.
Problem 1 sounds like the one you have so give the reply a try.
If you are using autologin, you need to disable it. Edit /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager as root, and remove your user from the DISPLAYMANAGER_AUTOLOGIN parameter. Restart kde and all should be well.
