unable to open or launch any application or icon from yast


Hi,

Yesterday I have installed OpenSuse13.1 on my machine. I have downloaded the iso file using bittorrent and while installing the OS it gave messages as wrong digest due you want to install the package and I answered yes. Upto now the system worked fine. I thought that something is wrong with the system so I opened the software manager and selected update the packages if new version is available it has shown messages regarding package dependencies such as do not install ... and remove the package... I have selected do not install .. option many times. I have installed some other packages related to kernels, hal, udev.

At present I am unable to open any application or icon like bootloader, software repositories, services etc., from Yast.

Another issue is I am unable to use gnome desktop and when I try to login to gnome desktop it is giving warning as Oh something went wrong please logout and try again.

I have tried to login into the system by pressing ALT + F1 and succeeded then I have issued the command yast and then yast window opened and in that I have selected software manager it gave warning as there is problem with ncurses pkg please see the log file.

Please help me to use my system efficiently without any errors.

Regards,
Rupesh.

So it would appear that you may have gotten a corrupted install image. Did you check the files MD5 hash, to confirm it was correct? And since you got errors DURING THE INSTALLATION, why would you think they'd disappear after you got things installed? And if you tell your system to NOT install dependencies to updates, you will either (a) not get the updates, or (b) get an update that doesn't work..since you didn't install the updates.

...which would further indicate serious problems with your system, or a permissions issue.

...which STILL indicates major system problems, due to a poor installation or corrupted image.

Go back to step one...download the 13.1 ISO image, make SURE it's valid, and burn a fresh DVD, and reinstall. At this point you've got far too many problems to deal with, especially on a fresh install. Why spend lots of hours trying to make things work, when a re-install (at this point), would take you 20 minutes, and make your system function correctly?

Also, we still require actual error messages...saying "it gave messages like", tells us very little. And please, again, contact the moderators if you can't remember your login details for the "rupeshforu" account, rather than creating a new one.

reinstalling the complete OS is tedious work and also I have installed other software so please help me to solve the issue.

I am providing the output of the command /sbin/yast2 sw_single below

Quote:
linux-p6x0:~/soft # /sbin/yast2 sw_single
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'YUIPluginException'
what(): Couldn't load plug-in gtk
YaST got signal 6 at YCP file /usr/share/YaST2/modules/Wizard.rb:818
/sbin/yast2: line 392: 5211 Aborted $ybindir/y2base $module "$@" "$SELECTED_GUI" $Y2_GEOMETRY $Y2UI_ARGS
linux-p6x0:~/soft #
Can you suggest the solution on examining the above output.

Reinstalling should take no more than 20 minutes...and is FAR less tedious than trying to repair a bad installation.

Yes, I did before: DO A FRESH REINSTALL. As said previously, there are MANY things wrong with your system....you can go through package by package, repository by repository, and try to reinstall ALL the software you've already done, and STILL not fix all the problems you're having, or do a fresh install in a fraction of the time and get them ALL fixed.

Again, your system was doomed from the very start, since you got errors during installation. Do it again, and do it right, and you won't have them. And AGAIN, contact the moderators about your other account.

the torrent client DID check each part so it IS the same as on the mirrors
Now burning to dvd ?????

that can cause issues sometimes


burn a new disk but at the SLOWEST SPEED !!!!!

2x or 4 x
do NOT burn at 52x or 48x !!!


during the opensuse install
did you set a seporate root password ? or are you using the first non root user password ( as the root password) and sudo


i would use a seporate root password and make sure that root dose have a home folder ( login as root to kde or gnome ONE TIME ONLY !!!
loging in as root into xorg is never a great idea -- but one time to set a theme that YOU HATE !!! like "high contrast" i do recommend .


if you did NOT set up a separate root password then you MUST launch programs that need you to be root must be launched with gtksu

that is set up on the very first boot after install


as to gnome3
some people ( like me , loved gnome 2 but really dislike gnome3 )
so that is something to think about


but gnome3 dose need some hardware to run

otherwise it "falls back" to the fall back mode
that in 13.1 is supposed to be better than in 12.3
( but i am waiting for 13.2 before in install 13 )
