suse yast2 problems


hey all,

I'm having some frustrating problems with the Yast2 stuff in my copy of Suse 9.1 Pro. I just can't get it to run, you try to open up a Yast2 module and it asks for a password and you type it in and press enter and then it acts like it's loading up yast2 but then nothing happens; even in root I cannot access the Yast2 modules. If you try to load up the Yast2 stuff in Control Centre you'll just get a grey screen with no information. Please help me out, I hope I don't need to reinstall everything again

hi there.

did you try to run yast in terminal mode. Yes, it exists also.
from the terminal

Code:
yast
what happens? If it works you have problems with your qt libraries

regards

sounds strange

yast at the terminal should bring text interface of yast. this should run clean. independent of window manager, desktop environment,etc.

unfortunately i don't run suse anymore. can't help further

sorry

it's in /sbin, so not in your default PATH.
do "su - -c yast" instead
