Hi James,

I did this, but still no GUI, can't launch kde (gives a bunch of mkdir errors). Command line linux seems to be functioning however, I can launch the text version of YAST. Also, the "configure graphics" section of YAST briefly brings up a gui after it tests the graphics card, then, after you click "ok" back to command line. During the bootup, a gui appears for about 1/2 second.

What do you expect should have happened after I followed those steps?

Hi James,

so do I just log in as root, do steps one and two, and then reboot?

I have seen this before, you can fix it by either running a live cd or
the rescue cd  and set the machine to invoke the firstboot routine.

     1. As root, create a file called /etc/reconfig_system by entering
touch /etc/reconfig_system
2. Enable the firstboot service by entering the following at the
command line as root: insserv firstboot
