We have recently installed Suse 11 Enterprise Edition for the purpose of running an IBM Tivoli Maximo Asset Management programme from it, it's within a vmware environment (version 2.5.0) and has a fixed ip address. We have no previous experience with any Linux products but wanted to experiment with this as a potential way to reduce costs, we managed to get the IBM product installed when logged in as Root as IBM's instructions told us it would only work if it was installed from from the Root level & despite our reservations after reading posts on here we did do this. Everything seemed ok for a couple of weeks but last week we had to update the Maximo software which resulted in us having to restart the Linux box & that's when our problems started. We get as far as the login page but every time we enter the credentials now the Gui page just seems to get stuck in a loop constantly taking us back to the same point, we've seen from other posts that it appears to be some kind of problem with the graphics but having tried numerous fixes off other posts we are still stuck in this loop & are stuck at what to do next.
