Why not boot into failsafe mode after having seen this confusing error

Which will give you the same login.

Which is wrong. It gives you a GUI. You didn't try it.

I would expect an
average user will notice that resolution, color depth, mouse, keyboard
ore touchpad settings are no longer optimal and he will change that by
using the appropriate YaST module (which is a frontend to SaX2). I
don't see the problem here.

Well this is possible if Failsafe will give you some GUI.

It does.

All our support is online.

You know that VESA is pretty safe bet.
If one installed openSUSE than VESA works.

While fiddling with xorg.conf.install is easy enough to describe, and I used
it to bail out few users in forums, adding few more fonts making
xorg.conf.vesa and starting X automatically with that, will make experience
much better.

xorg.conf.install, which we use for the 'x11failsafe' mode, is good
enough. Who the hell still relies on server side font rendering for
his desktop?
