Hi Andreas,

The biggest change to the system was probably running harden_suse
which I did in the following way:

harden_suse y y y y y n y n y y

This seemed to have worked quite well.

Strangely, after doing harden_suse I can't launch KDE2 anymore KDE
instead works fine. Guess I have run into some typically newbie
problems here by trying to figure things out which I don't completely
understand at the moment ;-)

Any hints?

Sounds like a contradiction, I know ;-)
