I had patched the OES 11 SP1 via YAST in order to update to OES 11 SP2. Upon restart, I can no longer login into the GUI.
The log files shows this:
Oct 19 09:45:08 millies1a [XTCOM]: WARNING: gdm_session_settings_load: lang = (null)
Oct 19 09:45:12 millies1a pam_autoncl[22163]: Auto Login will not continue - disabled for root user

Oct 19 09:45:16 millies1a gdm-simple-greeter[6948]: GLib-GObject-CRITICAL: g_object_class_install_property: assertion `G_IS_PARAM_SPEC (pspec)' failed

What happened and how do I correct it?

Thanks in advance,
Ken
