openSUSE 11.3 'Teal' problem. No GUI.

hi,

I recently installed openSUSE 11.3 from a magazine I got. I installed it using VMware player (and tried it in VirtualBox 3.2.8 too) in my Windows 7 ultimate desktop.
I selected a KDE desktop during installation.
Here is my PC config: Intel Core 2 Duo E7400, Zotac Geforce 9800GT 512MB synergy, 4GB DDR2 ram, 1080p monitor 23 inch, 500GB HDD.
openSUSE config: 1024MB base memory, 21 mb video memory etc.

Here is what I get:

Welcome to openSUSE 11.3 “Teal” - Kernel 2.6.34-12-default (tty1)

Please help me!

Does it find the ‘startkde’ command? Try that instead.

What is the result of:

which startx

which startkde

As a rough guess, you need to install either kde or gnpme.
You can do this by logging in as root at the console and typing yast.
This will give you the gtk version of yast.
