    Fresh install of openSUSE Leap 15.2 with online repos enabled during install. During boot, KDE fails to load and falls back to console. In reviewing /var/log/messages, noticed this:

    After logging in, can use
    to launch KDE without issue. FWIW, tried same install on VMWare Fusion without issue. Any ideas?
