Thanks, Scott!

Yup.  That fixed it.  It wasn't just the Raritan dongles
with issues.  I plugged a monitor directly into the back
and still had the problem.

Found "nomodeset" worked with the direct-attach
monitor and wanted to verify it also fixed the problem
with the Raritan hardware, too, before posting back
to this list.  (It does, both text and X11 consoles are
now working with Raritan system.)

I suppose I should file a bug so one of SUSE's
engineers can give this some attention ...
