None of the modules work? Or just some?
How did you start yast? From the KDE menu?
Does Yast work from text console (change to console Ctrl+Alt+F1, login as root and type yast) ?
What do the logfiles say(/var/log/YaST2/y2log, /home/<user>/.y2log)?

I am having the same issue. It worked until I performed an online software update through the yast terminal.

Yast does not respond when attempting to log in from KDE tools or control center.
It asks for our root password and then nothing.

If you log in from the yast option in the control center it asks for root password and states "yast is starting up".. and never does.

Can you reinstall Yast? (newbie)

yast

Im having the same problems, it was after yast online update downloaded a patch for yast. First noticed it when trying to change the time by right clicking on kicker clock then Adjust time and date. The qt version asks for root password then vanishes.

There is an error from the console version which completely crashes yast (after trying to launch the time and date module)

Code:
Import 'RootPart' failedT
 │                │ IniSegmentation fault at /usr/share/YaST2/clients/inst_timezone.ycp:188
 │                │        /sbin/yast: line 185: 16742 Segmentation fault      $ybindir/y2base menu ncurses
 │                │
which then returns to bash. Some of the modules still work for me such as install/remove software, sorry if this is not the same error but its on the same lines

DickH and others,

I've seen YAST stop functioning (in 9.1) when you add another installation source in the YAST Software module, under Change Source of Installation. Can you confirm that you have not added any other sources or removed your default, beit CD or DVD?

Regards

9.1 YaST mouse & time module not working

Hello People

I have a similar or the same problem. YaST works fine for me, except for two modules: the mouse and time configuration. When I run the graphical YaST, I click on the icon, a new window (for mouse configuration for example) opens, and then closes.
When I run "yast" from the command line as root and select mouse configuration, the programs crashes with error message:

Import 'RootPart' failed YaST
│ │Segmentation fault at /usr/share/YaST2/clients/inst_mouse.ycp:157 │
│ /sbin/yast: line 185: 5748 Segmentation fault $ybindir/y2base menu ncurses │
│ alex:/var/log/YaST2 #

For time configuration, it is:
Import 'RootPart' failed YaST
│ │Segmentation fault at /usr/share/YaST2/clients/inst_timezone.ycp:188 │
│ /sbin/yast: line 185: 5798 Segmentation fault $ybindir/y2base menu ncurses │
│ alex:/var/log/YaST2 #

I am not conscious of having done anything 'interesting' .... like adding installation sources to YaST. I had two USB mice plugged in for a while.

Any idea?

YaST chrashes on the mouse module for me too, have done nothing to the system... just did a fresh install like 2 days ago, the only thing I did to make changes was performing a YaST online update.

The problem can be solved by 'downgrading' the last online update of the package yast2-update to the original version.

This is not a security fix, it fixes some problems with yast and gnome. So if you are using KDE, you may safely downgrade.

Update:

SuSE has released a new patch, that fixes the previous 'bad' patch. So you may run online update and the problem should be solved (it's also a way to get rid of the yellow symbol of the SuSE watcher )

Thank you for the update. I was unaffected by the problem, but if you hadn't been kind enough to post your solution/update, then I may simply have avoided the YaST update for a while.

Thanks again.

Leaving Suse 9.2 Pro!

I quit!

I spent one month trying to run a Suse 9.2 Pro on a Toshiba Notebook 256 Mb ram.

Well, first of all i had a very dificult starting experience: I did not find the ISO to download on Suse's official ftp site. It seems that Suse is a kind of "comercial" distro.

After downloading the 5 ISOs from Bittorrent, I installed and realized that the Gnome was not updated and YAST has not all of the packets (or repository) designed for Suse 9.2 Pro.
I think of using Linux as a FREE software. To do that i need a real FREE distro, easily found on the Internet and with a tons of packages.
I have to say that Suse, technically talking, is a very good distro.

What bothered me was the impression of the official Suse Site: i fell that they are always hiding thinks from the users (packages), not showing the place to download them.

I downloaded the last version of Fedora Core 3 (4 cds), i took 45 minutes to install "almost" everything on my notebook. This version comes with Gnome 2.8, an update system (on-line update) with all functions working fine.

I really use Linux as a powerfull work environment, a fun center, and also as a developer station.
I'm a IT consultant.

Best regards,
