I just update my system to Suse 12.3 and KDE 4.10.
During the upgrading I made a mistake, I had the nVidia repository deactivated, so after the first run the system didn’t start correctly.
I had to boot in console mode, activate the nVidia repository and update it.
Now, when I start the computer, it starts in console mode, and so I have to give the startkde command each time to run KDE. After that, the system works fine.
I tried to see if there was something wrong in the /etc/conf/displaymanager, but it looks right to me, here below the relevant lines:
I opened YaST and sysconfig editor and i see the following . Probably displaymanager should be kdm4. Then again i might be wrong
Possible Values: kdm, kdm3, kdm4, xdm, gdm, wdm, entrance, console or any value
Here you can set the default Display manager (kdm/xdm/gdm/wdm/entrance/console).
all changes in this file require a restart of the displaymanager
We value your contributions, but can you please put CODE tags around the commands you offer to be used? That will clearly make a boundary between what you tell and the commands themselves and make them better readable (while reading normal language the difference between l I and 1 might not put anybody on the wrong leg, but in commands it may be fatal).
You get the CODE tags by clicking on the # button in the toolbar of the post editor.
