After upgrading to 11.3 I no longer have a GUI system.
First the upgrade hosed grub and I had to fix the menu entries, as the upgrade set the wrong drive as the root partition. I tried downloading an install disk, but the Repair System option is gone, so I had to use rescue system to edit the grub menu.
So now at least I can boot again, however there is no X11 working. I tried using Sax2 to configure it, but there is no longer Sax2 to use. So how do I configure X then?
If you ask me, OpenSuse is going backwards, instead of forwards.
Yes I have the reference link as you suggested, however if you read my last post none of those solutions worked at all, they just resulted in a frozen X, and blank screen and no way to kill the x server as ctrl-alt-back did not work, and I had to restart the computer. I ended up trying step 7 which was install proprietary driver ( ati) however this says it can’t find any XFree86.
So I ended up downloading the install disk , and ran upgrade from the install and it upgraded more then 200 packages even though zypper dup said everything was up to date even after a zypper ref.
Anyway choosing upgrade from the install on the disk got me working GUI,no acceleration:(, andr now I can’t get vmware running, it says that kernel headers for version 2.6.34-12-desktop can’t be found. Even though according to yast they are installed, and checked usr/src/linux which seems to be the correct link. I did a make cloneconfig, make and everything compiled fine, so I assume the headers are installed properly, so why can’t vmware compile the necessary modules, any ideas?
Update - make modules works, but with a warning that modpost found 18 section mismatches, would this be relevant at all maybe?
