No X After Installation

This problem was fixed in 10.3 RC1 and is also working correctly in 10.3 Final.

During every installation so far (only one exception) of openSUSE 10.3 including Beta 3 (going back to Alpha 1), after the installation, X crashes and exits runlevel 5 dumping me at a text based login.

Everyone that I know that has been helping me test openSUSE 10.3 (including myself) can't believe that this stupid problem hasn't been fixed yet...  and if the problem still exists in RC1, I am sure the final version of 10.3 will still contain this bug.  Months of bug reporting has done NOTHING to get a working solution during installation.

This problem currently affects everyone using newer models of the "Logitech Gaming Mouse" (more info).  True to form, I am running the Logitech G5 Gaming Mouse, so I run into this problem every time I install.

This problem is minor and very simple to fix...

Login as a normal user.

After logging in type su to become root.

Type these commands in order:

cd /etc/X11/
mv xorg.conf xorg.bad
cp xorg.conf.install xorg.conf
exit

This will move the virtually empty xorg.conf file out of the way and replace it with one that will work correctly.

After you typed the exit command (above) you should still be logged in as a normal user.

Make sure that the current line at the console is not red, which would indicate that you are still logged in as root.  If it is red, just type exit again.

Once you are sure that you are back to being just a normal user, type this command and hit enter:

startx

Fixed!
