X11 worked after installation, but now it fails.
It's unclear how to proceed getting it to work again.
sax2 has gone, sax3 is unusable and aborts.
The error messages are also unclear.
In one attempt I removed all x11 packages
and reinstalled them again. Same results.
Also tried it with yast2, no help.
yast2 has no option to fix/recreate a working X11 setup.
startx (as root) also mysteriously hangs for a minute
or so before exiting with an unhelpful message.

It would perhaps be a good idea if users are provided
with a tool in yast2 to recreate a working X11 setup
similar to what the installation does.
