    At the end of the kernel line in GRUB2, at start-up (hold the left-hand Shift key down, hit "e" to get there), type in nomodeset and then hit F10 -- see if this does not give you a GUI.

    XDM is pretty old and bare bones. Surely gdm would be default with OpenSuse? Were you playing around with different WMs?

    There both display managers but I don't think GDM uses any of XDM's code - it's a replacement for it. They do both implement XDMCP.

    SDB:NVIDIA drivers - openSUSE

    Take a look at that page maybe it will help. I had two desktops and two laptops that had me pulling my hair out between opensuse 12.1 and 12.3. One desktop running nvidia, and the other 3 ati/intel.
