I booted up my Tumbleweed machine.

I use CTRL-ALT-F1 to get to a virtual console. There, I logged in as root.

I used the "script" command, so that I would have a transcript of the update
session. I then did:

zypper dup

While the update was proceeding, I was working on my 13.2 desktop. When I
returned to the computer, I saw only a green screen (the default wall-paper).

Nothing that I tried would wake it up. Trying CTRL-ALT-F1 did not get me
to the virtual console. It looked as if the keyboard was being ignored.

I was able to "ssh" into the box from my 13.2 desktop. The update seemed to
have completed ("zypper" was not running). The output in the "typescript"
was incomplete (probably due to buffering). I did a "kill -HUP" on the shell
process. That flushed the output to the "typescript file", and now I could
that the update was complete. I rebooted (from the ssh session). The system
came up fine.

I'm really not sure what happened, but probably an update or process restart
caused problems.

I would hazzard a guess it was related to zypper update, but ...

I just completed the same but I download all first and then apply and did
both via an ssh session from my main desktop. Did 'systemctl daemon-reexec'
and then 'rcxdm restart' and my desktop reloaded with no deleted processes

But running kde.
