SuSE 11.4 Stuck on Console Screen
I am stuck on an unknown screen upon boot.
When I rebooted my system I arrived at the login screen like usual
On the bottom left-hand corner of the screen there are other options to choose which GUI mode to log into.
I was curious as to what these other modes are so I selected one of them.
It brought me to a black screen with a small white terminal. I don't know which mode this is.
I typed in reboot, and my system rebooted.
I thought the login screen would appear again but instead, it brings me back to this screen.
I don't understand which specific steps I am required to take in order to troubleshoot this error because I do not know what this screen is called.
Sometimes upon rebooting I am stuck on a black screen with the words GRUB on it. The cursor is flashing like it is expecting to receive commands but it does not respond to the keyboard. I have to hard reset my laptop several times in a row in order to bypass this screen and begin booting.
