hi,

I am running SLES 9.3 on VMware ESX 3.5 Update 2 latest  version with the default release of KDE that comes with SLES 9.3.  When I try start KDE by going into runlevel 5 it comes up with an error that says that there is no screen available.

Is there a work around for this?

I did install vmware tools and then rebooted the vm.  The vmware tools status is still "not installed" though.

try to login in text mode, re-install vmware tools and ensure that it is installed.  Once booted it should state installed.
