Hi all!
I upgraded Opensuse and now I cannot open X. The message is;

xinit failed. /usr/binXorg is not setuid,maybe the reason?
If so either use a display manager ( strongly recommended) or adjust /etc/permissions.local

Here is the content of /etc/permissions.local

# /etc/permissions.local
# This file is used by SuSEconfig and chkstat to check or set the modes
# and ownerships of files and directories in the installation.
# In particular, this file will not be touched during an upgrade of the
# installation. It is designed to be a placeholder for local
# additions by the administrator of the system to reflect filemodes
# of locally installed packages or to override file permissions as
# shipped with the distribution.
# Format:
# <file> <owner>:<group> <permission>
# Please see the file /etc/permissions for general usage hints of the
# /etc/permissions* files.
# Please remember that logfiles might be modified by the logfile
# rotation facilities (e.g. logrotate) so settings entered here might
# be overridden. Also devices files (/dev/*) are not static but
# managed via udev so this file can't be used to modify device
# permissions either.

# suexec is only secure if the document root doesn't contain files
# writeable by wwwrun. Make sure you have a safe server setup
# before setting the setuid bit! See also
# https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=263789
# http://httpd.apache.org/docs/trunk/suexec.html
#/usr/sbin/suexec2            root:root       4755

# setuid bit on Xorg is only needed if no display manager, ie startx
# is used. Beware of CVE-2010-2240.
#/usr/bin/Xorg                 root:root       4711

What should I do?

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984

I had been there josh but since we couldn't find a fix I thought that someone else here would know.

After my problem last night I had been in yast (text) and install nvidia-gfxG02-kmp-desktop instead of nvidia-gfx-kmp-desktop to no avail. I just reinstalled the 2nd (gfx, no G02) and I am back into Gnome. Now I am happy!
