    I got your PM...
    Have you tryed login in as root?
    the error message doesnt seems to be related to Xserver... but more like an internal configuration.... your xorg.conf file looks ok... did you had any difficulties adding new user?

    Yes i tried to login as root,but sometimes this problem appears for root too,let me explain it :
    when i found this problem i tried to login as root to fix it .when i could not fix it i made a new user .for the first time i tried to login the new user i did not have any problem ,but when i restarted my computer this problem appears for the new user too ,also in a few times i had this problem with ROOT.so i had to reinstall suse.but again...
    also one of my friends suggested me to do this:
    when the login page runs press Alt+Ctrl+F1/F2 to run the text mode.
    then login as root
    write: su [username]
    then execute the "startx"command
    i did it ,but i had the problem which i told you in last reply (you can see it in the part which i was explaining my problem in text mode)
    hostname: Host name lookup failure
    hostname: Host name lookup failure
    xauth: (stdin):3: bad display name "/unix:0" in "add" command
