    Default Yast problem after online update

    Hello

    (running openSUSE 11.0, KDE 4.2)

    After online update, Yast started to crash. Yast panel opens, but when I select anything inside it (like software management, boot loader etc.) it crashes and gives error:

    YaST got signal 11 at YCP file /usr/share/YaST2/clients/inst_packages.ycp:36
    /sbin/yast2: line 421: 4378 Segmentation fault $ybindir/y2base $module "$@" "$SELECTED_GUI" $Y2_GEOMETRY $Y2UI_ARGS



    How do I resolve this?
    Thanks

    - remove /var/cache/zypp/zypp.db and /var/cache/zypp/zypp.db-journal

    sudo rpmdb --rebuilddb

    - then run 'zypper refresh'

    try yast again.

    If necessary run it from CLI to re-install all yast packages

    Are you tried to update unconditionally your YaST packages also with yast but from the CLI?

    I'm getting the same error message as beli0135. I submitted a bug report to Novell's bugzilla but haven't heard anything yet.

    I tried deleting the zypp files mentioned above and reinstalling the YaST packages but that didn't fix the problem.

    Actually several days ago I deleted some zypp files following some instructions I found on the mailing lists. The files listed above sounded like the ones I deleted, but after checking, I discovered that I don't have these files.

    I have /var/cache/zypp, but there's no zypp files within this directory.

    This directory is the local cache for zypper. It doesn't cause anything if you delete files from them. Next time if your run
    Code:
    zypper refresh
    zypper fills this cache with repo data.

    I still haven't had time to fix as you suggested, but last night, I uninstalled Yast completely, then reinstalled it. I get the same error in GUI, but when run from console it works.
    Seems that some library that handles gui is broken.

    When I find it, I will post here.

    Seems that some package of yast was updated and it is broken.
    For now, use yast from console when you need to fix something
