Ok so heres the problem,
I have an opensuse server, running opensuse 11.1
I have apache, mysql, and ffmpeg installed, among other apps like blender and gimp etc… .
Everything was working fine, untill 3 days ago, when, I ran a couple of system updates (from the official opensuse widget thing that pops up)
At the same time howerver i tried to update to KDE 4, this turned out to be a bad idea, as i was already running it and forgot i had already upgraded…
(I know its stupid… :s )
Anyway, after a reboot (turned off over night)
i have a problem…
The computer boots, enters the opensuse boot screen where it lets me choose boot options, and then loads suse (keyboard works fine at this point)
But once suse is booted and the desktop is displayed, i have no control over the computer. the mouse and keyboard are non functional.
On top of this the server is no longer functioning, leading me to believe that the system may be frozen, not just not accepting input signals.
The keyboard also doesn’t work in runlevel 3.
I have booted to a live cd and taken the important files off, but obviously i want to try and save it rather than do a server rebuild…
I have also replaced the xorg.conf file with one from the live cd, but still no luck, just changed the screen resoulution a bit…
Please help, need to get the server up and running, as it is hosting my schools Video Server…
