Thread: Yast "No such client module sw_single"- opensuse 11.0

Hybrid View

    Default Yast "No such client module sw_single"- opensuse 11.0

    Blew up my Yast install on an opensuse 11.0 install. From the command line, running yast in ncurses mode just comes up with empty screen.

    From the GUI, I see the message from the title.

    I don't see any useful error messages in yast logs or any other logs for that matter.

    No idea where to begin, and don't even know how I can resurrect Yast2 from the install media.

    Have you tried using zypper?

    From a terminal go su and do:

    zypper ref

    zypper up

    that will refresh the repo's and run updates.

    Did you try booting to level3 user and then go su and run:

    yast

    this should launch a basic form of yast - keyboard only

    Yes, zypper itself works fine, and both of the operations you suggest have no problems. I can also run the terminal version of yast, but this comes up completely blank - all of the Yast menu trees are missing.

    try this:

    zypper in yast* -f

    or

    zypper in yast2* -f

    the -f should force re-install of all yast modules

    Thanks. That got Yast back, but it is in kind of an odd state - it keeps reporting the same patch updates as available even though I've already installed them.

    Whatever was in the hopper when this started, I suspect.

    'zypper up'

    just reports "Nothing to do".

    This was a bug in 11.0
    I thought it was fixed, but as I recall most users just selected never install. Personally it never affected me as I only updated via software management.
