Thread: Yast2 runlevel editor trouble

    Exclamation Yast2 runlevel editor trouble

    Hi there,

    I have a problem with the runlevel editor. It hangs at 28 per cent when initialising
    the runlevels. (Process: y2base runlevel qt). It used to work fine, probably until
    I installed an update recommended by yast, including a new kernel. I did not immediately
    reboot after installing the new kernel but used the runlevel editor, which has hung since then.

    I've tried a reboot without success.

    Does anyone know what I could do to get this running again?

    Andy

    Try re-installing yast2-runlevel

    If that does not work please supply some information about your system (especially the version and any non-default software installed).
    I am assuming that the problem is not confined to the graphical interface, but is experienced in text-mode YaST (from a console/text terminal).

    Thanks for your suggestion. The problem is the same in text-mode.

    I have already tried re-installing yast2-runlevel. Maybe I should de-install this feature before re-installing it. But then a lot of other yast packages get de-installed automatically. I can't risk shutting down a running server.

    My system is Opensuse 11.4 out of the box, all recommended updates done.

    The only thing I've installed that comes from another source is an up-to-date version of Webmin, which I have used to configure the nameserver. Webmin could be the culprit, of course. On the other hand it runs smoothly on other systems I have set up.

    I've got no idea what the problem is or how to fix it but please try search.opensuse.org.

    There are some threads (at least 2 that pop out with a very similar problem). Here's an example :
    YaST2 System Services (Runlevel) hangs at 28%

    Maybe You will find what you're looking for there ?

    Thanks for the advice Greg,

    I got it running again, but only if I kill /usr/lib/YaST2/servers_non_y2/ag_initscripts.

    Someone else has the same problem.

    It seems to originate from non-yast2 init scripts. If only I knew what scripts
    belong in this category.

    Well I don't know the answer. But if I wanted to see where a yast
    process was hanging, I'd look in the yast logs to see what it last
    reported ...

    That was a good idea. There were lots of errors.
    The trouble seems to have been caused by the init script for the ups
    power unit. I have removed it and a glitch in the /etc/inittab
    It read: id:555:initdefault: instead of just 5. Probably my fault.

    The system is OK again. Thanks for everyone's help.

    Andy
