    Question OpenSuSE 10.3 YaST troubles

    The bootloader module never starts & the partition one does but never gets to the partition part (gets stuck at initializing). So how am I seposed to save grub to floppy (make a bootdisk) or look at my partitions from within YaST?

    Edward78,

    Have you tried running the text version 'yast' from within a terminal?
    You could also try running 'yast2' from within a terminal. This will start
    the GUI one, but you can see any errors logged to the terminal screen.

    You can obtain a display of your partitions from a console/konsole with fdisk:

    # this shows ALL partitions on ALL drives
    fdisk -l

    # just for drive sda
    fdisk -l /dev/sda

    need to be root, of course.

    Niclas' reply about starting yast2 from a konsole is good, remember you need
    to be root to do this.

    -open a konsole
    -Become root (supply password when asked)
    su - root
    -start yast gui
    yast2

    then you can watch the output on the konsole to see if any errors or problems
    are reported.
