I was just watching a youtube video and now I can’t boot anymore. I think I had a software update running in the background, although I had pressed the “quit” button, but I’m pretty sure that it somehow kept running in the background. I had removed all the default repos and put in a few of my own over time to get the new gcc, and to make it all compatible somehow… well anyway, now I only had console mode. Then I thought “well it cant get much worse”, so I did a “zypper up” but now at boot it hangs here:
Starting LSB: X Display Manager Failed to start X Display Manager : FAILED See "systemctl status xdm.service" for details Started susefirewall2 phase 2 : OK Started Postfix Mail Transport Agent: OK
And the “systemctl status xdm.service” command shows this:
Active: failed (result: exit-code) Process 3601 ExecStart=/etc/init.d/xdm start (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE CGroup: name=systemd:/system/xdm.service : Starting service gdm : Using failsafe X.Org configuration /etc/X11/xorg.conf.install
So I tried doing **zypper in -f -t pattern X11
**But it tells me

I don’t know how to go forward here, what do I do?
