First of all, thanks for your answers. However, I saw mostly 
installation of yours were Minimal X + Trinity or you installed OpenSUSE 
with default desktop (KDE 4) then installed Trinity. Also, I think 
minimal installation without X causes some permission problems or 
something else to prevent opening kdm.  Hence, when you did a minimal X 
installation, your system has tones of unnecessary packages like some 
ncurses applications of yast and with dependencies, bootsplash etc etc 
(for me of course).

Besides, I tried minimal OpenSUSE install + simple Xorg server + 
Trinity, still Trinity and kdm not starting. Hence, I looked at logs and 
there's no error about kdm or anything related with Trinity. After all, 
I think I'm going to choose Minimal X + Trinity installation and I'll 
inform you what I achieved..

Thanks for your answers. If someone will try minimal without X then 
install Xorg and try to install and run Trinity and in the end success 
to run,  let me know.
