I've upgraded my virtual machine from Suse 12.2 Milestones 3 to 12.2 Beta 1 as suggested by zypper, but now I can't boot into my desktop -- the boot stops after starting the MySQL database server. I can boot into a recovery console, but I don't know how to fix this problem. This forum thread didn't help, nor did adding the nomodeset boot parameter.

What's going wrong? At the very least, how can I start X in failsafe mode to debug it?

Edit: My Xorg is owned by root and I have set setuid bit to no avail. But runlevel 3 seems to work (network connection).

what about 12.2 release? I works now? – maniat1k Sep 11 '12 at 14:55
Needs more info, and is apparently abandoned – Michael Mrozek Sep 25 '12 at 0:58

Maybe you can add more info.

Boot it up with recovery and check the /var/log/messeges. and/or /var/log/mysql/mysqld.log (and add it to you question)

You can try by removing mysql from startup: read this Stop program running at startup in Linux

Hope It helps.
