Hi there,

I installed openSUSE 11 on my wife's old laptop. The laptop was too
old and too slow so I decided to put install Virtual Box 1.6.2 on my
PC running WinXP SP3.

After I installed Virtual Box 1.6.2, I installed openSUSE 11 on my
virtual machine (guest). Installation went fine but when I boot using
the default option (openSUSE ..blah blah), I got a classic UNIX logon
screen instead of a GUI:

Welcome to openSUSE 11.0 (i586) - Kernel (tty1).

cbd451 is my host name.

Yes, that is all I can see. Where is the GUI?

If I boot the machine using safe mode, I can see the GUI/Logon screen.

So what have I done wrong?

I am a newbie on Linux and my UNIX is skill is quite limited. Your
help is very appreciated.

That's not unix, it is linux in text mode. You can log-in as root, then run:

init 3
init 5

and see what errors you get, if any.
