First off, I’d like to inform those with generous hearts that I do not have any experience with Linux beyond typing or basic usage. I don’t have any knowledge on text commands, or configuration, or whatnot. Anyway, I’m having this problem with my SuSE 10.1. I was just using it as I would usually, then it was suddenly typing in Hangul (Korean) for no apparent reason. Then, when I restarted it to see if that disappears, it wasn’t able to load the GUI (X server or something like that). Now, there’s this message:
Failed to start the X server (your graphical interface). It is likely that it is not set up correctly. Would you like to view the X server output to diagnose the problem? (I chose yes). So, this is what it showed me:

That’s it. Then I go to the command line. I can log in, but I don’t know what to do. Please help. If there is anything else that I need to know or a point of clarification that someone needs or wants to give, I would accept it. Thank you!
