I’m running a pretty much vanilla 12.2 installation with a KDE desktop (it was a 12.1 install to begin with). Debug info for most packages are installed so I can post crash reports if I need to. This morning I noticed an update was available so I applied it, it only updated 1 file/package as I recall, might have been kde-login or something. Needed a reboot, so I rebooted. Next I notice more updates are available, this time 44 packages got updated. These seem to be kde related, themes and the like. Now after a reboot, I get the green OpenSuSE screen which just sits there forever. Pressing the Escape key brings up the boot messages and I’ve noticed the following:
Failed to start Avahi mDNS/DNS-SD
Failed to start Login Server
Failed to start System Services Security Daemon
Failed to start NetworkManager
Failed to start LSB: SuSEfirewall2 Phase 1
Failed to start LSB: SUSE Meta PPP daemon
Now I cannot login, Ctrl+Alt+F1 does nothing. I’m at a loss. Will try a ‘safe’ mode boot to see if that makes any difference and will edit this post with the results. Luckily this is a dual boot with Win 7, but I prefer using OpenSuSE and want my Geeko back!
