    Default yast2 shot dead

    greetings,
    i think i totally shot the gui on yast 2 ... i did an update, and ever since i get 'error while creating client module*' message, no matter on what i click in the yast control centre ... i googled hours to find asolution, but nothing seems to fix it ... things tried so far:
    loggin in as level 3 and starting yast -- yast won't start up
    smart upgrade 'yast2*' -- 'no interesting updates available'
    'zypper up' in terminal produces and executes updates, but does not fix the problem
    'zypper dup' in terminal gets to computate upgrade and hangs itself there ....
    anyone has got something i haven't tried ... thanks people ...theo

    Hi Theo,

    Besides the YaST issuse... Is your system working normally?
    Any idea what the update where you placed?

    Also, which version of openSUSE are you running?

    If YaST won't start, not even in ncurses console mode, you still have the option of downloading rpm's from the repository using wget or a browser.
    You might get things working by installing selective YaST rpms.

    Before doing this... any interesting messages in /var/log/YaST2/y2log or y2start.log ?

    Cheers,
    Wj
    Have a lot of fun!

    hallo WJ ... thanks for replying ... here the answers to your comments:
    1.) everything except yast seems to be working fine (well except for the annoying issue of ndiswrapper dropping the wifi all the time, but i already do research for that at the wifi forum) ...
    2.) i can't tell you a specific update ... whenever opensuse updater indicates there are updates, but refuses to execute the update, i go (well: went) into yast-->software mgnt-->package groups-->all packages and then right-clicked in the package list and chose 'all in this list->update, if newer versions are available' ....
    3.) on that machine: opensuse 11.0 with kde3 (i test 11.1 on the other) ...
    4). the only way, updates work is through console and 'zypper up' ... one-click install via opensuse's software repositories brings the same yast error ... installing via wget i never tried (and i admit, wouldn't really know how ... also, i am still learning console commands, so i also do not really know how to install via terminal) ...
    5.) when i did '/var/log/YaST2/y2log' and '.../y2start.log', i got the 'no permission'-reply ... even as superuser ...

    That is strange... Especially the ''yast2*' nicht gefunden'.
    It could be that your repository list is incomplete (missing the main, oss and non-oss repos).

    For a complete view, please post the output of
    zypper lr

    Not that it's a problem, but you do have quite some build and 3d party repositories in your list. This could cause dependency issues with certain packages... again, no drama.. just meant as a heads up!
    Have a lot of fun!
