    Default yast2 sw_single not starting

    Since a few days all yast2 modules which are in relation with software (install, install-sources,...) are starting no more. Zypper and yast are working fine.

    The tail of a strace yast2 sw_single looks so:

    Default Re: yast2 sw_single not starting

    Happens here as well. But not when I start yast2 via the menu......weird
    ° Appreciate my reply? Click the star and let me know why.

    ° Perfection is not gonna happen. No way.

    Crazy, you are right. It starts when you call Yast2 by the menu.

    This problem appears, when you call Yast2 or one of its sw-modules as root from a pts. A kdesu yast2 as user works for the best. I straced both, but I didn't came to a clue. Mybe a wrong set environmental variable or so.

    Hi
    Both ncurses and qt interface work fine here, no errors when starting
    from the CLI (Gnome DE)?

    Also came across this problem. With a clean install my system started yast2 and all the over components. A re-boot and adding the xen kernel later and I can not start any component from yast2.
    The kdesu yast2 approach seems to work though.
