SuSE 9.0 HeLP

Recommended Posts

I screwed up again...

 

While in SuSE I was opening up Counter Strike (steam) when it freezed. Being the complete newb that I am, I started mashing buttons...

Anyways, I think I pressed CTR-ALT something and it took me to a command screen and prompted for login, I logged in and then restarted. But now everytime I restart, it takes me to the command instead of the gui.

 

Any Ideas?

Thanks,

Capc

i don't know if suse does it also this way, you can do telinit 5...telinit 3 would take you back to the non-gui format...you type that in the terminal or the bash line if you running as non root then it would be /sbin/telinit 5

Thanks for trying to help guys, but to no avail...

 

Heres a re-cap of what I tried:

 

CTR-ALT F1:

Returns to colorfull comand login.

 

CTR-ALT F5:

Goes to regular black command login.

 

CTR-ALT F7:

Goes to black page with blinky square.

 

CTR-ALT F10:

Goes to a black command looking place and say's :

IO ERROR IN XOPENDIS

Dislplay :0 cannot be opened

 

Telnit 5:

Bash: Command not found

 

Any other Ideas?

Ok... try this...

 

Yast2 > System > Runlevel Edittor

 

Click "Expert" and then choose Runlevel 5 in the drop down menu towards the top. (should say "Full multiuser with network and xdm)

 

Let me know - I registered just to post this!

Well, I got into Yast and changed it to runlevel 5, but absolutely nothing changed.

 

So I just decided to screw around in console, when i swtiched it to telinit 3, then back to telinit 5 and it gave me this:

 

Skipped Loading (something like that...maybe disabled...):

 

SuSEfirewall2_setup

boot.sched

SuSEfirewall2_final

 

Maybe some of these things should be...enabled?

 

If something doesn't happen soon... I might just... RE-Install frown

 

I hoped it wouldn t come to this... frown

I got it working laugh

 

While browsing some other linux help forums, I found someone else with the same problem, and it was easily solved by running sax2.

 

Thanks to everyone that tried to help, I really do appreciate it!
