Thread: YaST Partitioner does not start

    Question YaST Partitioner does not start

    Hi all,

    I have a problem with YaST Partitioner. When I launch it, a window opens, a dialog (to confirm that I know what I am doing) pop-ups, I choose "Yes", the application starts to initialize, and after 0.5-1s the window is closed without any error message. Does anybody know how to at least find out what is wrong? .. or how to launch it from command line to get some output?

    OpenSUSE 11.3

    If the program used to work, but now it does not, it could be corrupted in some way. You could install gparted from the contrib repository and see if that helps. Is it possible you have a new partition that the partitioner does not understand? For instance I used to have issues with USB 3 drives in openSUSE 11.3 until I updated the kernel. You could also do the same thing by installing openSUSE 11.4.

    Thank You,

    You could do a test and see if you get a usable error message by running the
    yast module from the command line
    Code:
    su -
    yast2 disk

    Just if you are interested, to see which modules you can directly run
    Code:
    /sbin/yast2 -l # or /sbin/yast -l for the ncurses, should give the same
    you do not need to be root to show that list.

    Just an update, here is the output from command line:

    Code:
    yast2 disk
    process 19099: arguments to dbus_message_iter_append_basic() were incorrect, assertion "*bool_p == 0 || *bool_p == 1" failed in file dbus-message.c line 2541.
    This is normally a bug in some application using the D-Bus library.

    Unfortunately this does not really tell me much. Did you use "su -"? The "-"
    is essential. Otherwise hopefully someone else has an idea.

    As a workaround what about using the ncurses interface of yast for the
    moment, just call "yast disk" instead of "yast2 disk" in a terminal?
