cannot start KSM server, Check your installation. Checked the
.xsession-errors which tells me my current CPU does not support SSE.
Something else I read, can't remember where, said the kernel was wrong

AFAIK Opensuse 11.1 Kde4 I686.iso works on a 32 bit os and the 32 bit
kernel that would be installed for your cpu would be called kernel-pae
not default whereas the x86_64 version is called default. This could
explain why your kernel is the wrong version and why you are having
problems. The correct 64 bit iso is openSUSE-11.1-KDE4-LiveCD-x86_64.iso
.. You cannot run a 64 bit kernel with a 32 bit installation.

Good grief!! How embarrassing is this?? I'm fairly new at burning iso's but not that new. Can't believe I downloaded the wrong file.

Thanks for the wake up. I'm downloading the correct iso right now and will be in business by tomorrow.

I'm claiming a Senior Moment,
