Thread: error in yast modules

    Default error in yast modules

    Hello !

    I've opensuse 11 and a problem on yast 2.

    In fact, after a bad restart, I had to launch a "fsck" as a root.

    Now, I've a problem when I want to open things in yast.

    The error message is "error while creating module client XXX" and XXX is the module I try to open (sw_single or online_update for example).

    I've read many things on that kind of error on many forums, and most of them suggested to reinstall "zypper" and "libzypp", but even if I've done that, it doesn't work...

    So if you could help me...

    Thanks !

    I've tried
    zypper in -f yast*

    but it said that this package doesn't exist and "there's nothing to do".

    Then I tried with a "2" replacing the "*" and it installed yast2 but nothing changed.

    When I open yast, it asks for the password, then all icons images are not available anymore (there's a cross) and when I clic on it, it says "error while creating client module XXX"

    Sorry :s

    Lets try Yast from level 3

    At boot clear any boot arguments in the boot line and just type the number : 3

    then at login, do so as root
    then type:
    yast

    you should be able to work from here. If not come back.

    Hello !

    Thanks for your answer, but... what do you mean by "at boot, clear all boot arguments" ?

    When I start my computer, there's the opensuse "bar" which is shown until I can access to my computer...

    Can you explain me how I do what you suggested ?

    Thank you.

    At the boot choice screen where you select default, failsafe
    Use down arrow to stop the timer and move back up to default.
    Now, do you notice some text lower down, it may include vga=???
    Jut use backspace to clear it all
    type:
    3

    login as root, which is
    root
    rootpassword*

    then type;
    yast

    Hello,

    I chose "Failsafe.... (default)" (because it also exists "failsafe....(PAE)".

    There were things wroten after "VGA" (and it's the same case for all the stuffs I can choose before starting).

    So I just added "3" (and I saw that number in the different lines on boot).

    Then, login, password.

    With "yast" or "yast2" : "bash yast command doesn't exist"...

    Any idea ?

    Thanks
