Hy! I updated a Dell Precision M6400 notebook (no special graphics driver, plain KDE) via ssh (runlevel 3) from Leap 42.3 to 15 according to the SDB:System_upgrade. Things went well, but after reboot the system seems kind of broken, I can log in via ssh, but starting a vncserver results in the following:

...which seems to me as if the graphical mode is basically broken, or? Any help appreciated!
BUT: I let the system sit for 2 h, then I rebooted, just in case… And the log of the vncserver start looked NORMAL afterwards! Had trouble with firewall (susefirewall running, but no plugin in Yast to configure it, firewalld not running and also no yast plugin) as it didn’t allow VNCserver. But I cleaned that mess and now the system is up and running, showing Leap 15.0 as its new OS. Magic! sorry for the trouble, but keep in place, have another remote system to do the same procedure…
