yast not opening pages


hey all i'm always encountering problems but hopefully in the near future i'll be helping other ppl with linux
well here's the thing i was trying to update to kde 3.4.2 through yast so i went to the 'change source of installation' and i changed it to the directory and when i went to 'install and remove software' but it wont open, it loads and then as soon as the window opens it closes back by itself i tried it like 10 times, but other things are opening except for that page
does anyone know what could be he cause of that problem??

suse 9.1
kernel 2.6.5
kde 3.2.1

thanks all

It was common bug on 9.1 You'll have to manually edit the server. OR PERHAPS UPDATE YOUR SYSTEM TO 9.3

well i just experimented around a bit and i found out that the 'install and remove' page doesn't open if i add a local direcotry to the 'change installation source' page other than that it opens just fine

oh and btw i didn't wanna open a new thread for that since we're asking about yast and stuff i just ran into a problem while trying to install something and it gave me an error saying:
Quote:
checking for KDE... configure: error:
in the prefix, you've chosen, are no KDE headers installed. This will fail.
So, check this please and use another prefix!
i dont understand what's wrong because all of my kde packages are installed right... i just checked in yast

You could make ftp install, by downloadind the ISO file. Secondly, it's recommended to have CD/DVD in case of repairing installed system. And finally you can make updates of current version (libraries and security patches) but upgrades from 9.1 to 9.3 are not supported.
