I logged in as a regular user at RL 3 from grub boot menu. After
entering 'startxfce4', the same thing happened as earlier. The XFCE
Splash Screen (with mouse) appeared and there was a display at the
bottom of the same stating what modules were loading. The XFCE desktop
came on very briefly for about a second before crashing, after the HP
SysTRay load message. After this, it went back to console-view and
displayed about 20 lines of Error Message, am not sure where they
would be so unable to post them here. Looked in Yast -> System Log,
but the console error messages were not there.
