I've installed 11.4 on my ThinkPad R31 and it's completely DOA. I get
to the login screen and enter my ID and password. It then progresses
for a while an then there are video problems, with the colours washing
out to yellow-white. It's a good thing I saved a disk image, so I can
go back to 11.0.

Further on this:

I can start failsafe mode and also run TWM or ICEWM.

If I start with init 3 and then startx, I get some error messages:

'xauth: file /home/jknott/.serverauth.1931 does not exist'

'Fatal server error:
Cannot move old log file "/vr/log/Xorg.0.log" to "/var/log/Xorg.0.log.old'

https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=632737 removed the setuid bit
from
X, for security - startx is apparently deprecated.

If you still want it, you can restore the setuid bit locally via
/etc/permissions.local

add the line:
/usr/bin/Xorg root:root 4711

and run
SuSEconfig --module permissions
