    Default Problems with Yast2 control center

    Hello all, new to Linux so please bare with me.
    I'm having trouble with Yast, I notticed today that I can't open the control centre from the desktop (along with install/remove software) when opening from the command line I get. the following output:


    ** (y2controlcenter-gnome:9050): WARNING **: error accessing /desktop/gnome/lockdown/disable_command_line [Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See GConf configuration system for information. (Details 1: Failed to get connection to session: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.)]

    Yast2 control centre opens, but none of the options load when selected.
    I have tried updating everything through Zypper which didn't work. (aka zypper ref/up etc)
    Then I tried removing yast and installing it again. When I did this (and downloaded the Yast control centre again the above errors, reappeared.

    Really stumped, if anyone can help would really appreciate it !!

    You have to do "su -" first, perhaps you did not.
