Hi Bob,

I'm only guessing here, but if you have a special graphics card (i.e.
uses an nVidia chip) you'll have to fix your configuration due the
online-update installing a kernel update.

I don't know the procedure off the top of my head, but this has been
discussed many times on this list. Here's a link to a searchable
archive of suse-linux-e:

Search it using "nVidia" and "kernel update" or "black screen" etc. and
you should be able to locate the necessary details.

HTH & regards,

- - Carl
