Can anyone out there suggest what could be wrong and how to fix it ? I've tried the OpenSuSE rescue disk. It just bombs out. Can't start YaST. Can't access and library in /usr/lib64/ since the update which means that no part of the system can start or do anything. I can run smart and update the system with that but even that complains and not being able to access /usr/lib64/. Perhaps a chmod or chown in /usr/lib64 might be of some use ? Below is the output of .xession-errors............................

It looks like you're not using the nVidia driver.

You can startup the OS with init 3, which will give you text mode....command line. Log in, su to root, run yast. Check the "marked" repositories and make sure "nVidia" is selected. Then, do an update, reboot.
