Unhappy YaST Gray Screen


This is my first time running SUSE 9.2, I orignally installed 9.1 over FTP install from chicago server if that matters. I then upgraded to 9.2 which was missing alot of stuff it seemed. (I think I'm answering my own question here)

Anyways after the update was done 9.2 seemed fine. I went to go install nessus and couldn't get YaST to work... Everytime I go in it just sits at a gray screen... Am I doing something wrong? Or do I just need to do another 9.2 clean install...

(Keep in mind a noob)

Have you tried it from the command line? YaST is available through ncurses interface, too. If that doesn't work, YaST is certainly cracked... andthen you may want to re-install. It is a tough tool to do without.

So what should I do format the disk and just reinstall? I'm not good enough to do it via command line and I don't want to have to do it via command line.
