Thread: Yast dialog blank after update

  1. #1

    Default Yast dialog blank after update

    opensuse 12.2 64bit kde

    I've just updated, first time for several weeks, and ever since all yast dialogs are blank (solid grey). I can still use the text version from a terminal. The problem is only in the desktop. The dialogs look to still work, in that clicking on random positions produces new blank dialogs of sizes that vary with the position clicked. I have no idea really where to look for a fix. Any advice would be most welcomed.

    Cheers,
    Paul.

    I've just installed 12.3 on another server, and I have the same problem, but it's only when I access the desktop via vnc. I don't believe it's a tightvnc bug, or a kde bug because every other window I open is fine. It's a recently introduced bug in yast. Where should I report this?

    What makes you so sure about Yast. If Yast works OK when locally accessed, the bug is not in Yast, the bug/misconfiguration IMHO should be in the vnc connection.
    ° Appreciate my reply? Click the star and let me know why.

    Not the core of Yast, but the Yast kde app - something descended from the package patterns-openSUSE-kde4_yast, I'd guess - something wrong in the way it updates the screen, so that vnc doesn't pick up the update. I doubt if its a problem with vnc: I didn't update vnc; my vncserver is date June 2012. Also, vnc is working perfectly with the windows of every other app. Could be kde itself, I suppose (my startkde is dated 21 Mar 2013, so definitely recently update), but then again, how come every other app displays fine?

    I can't see how it can be a misconfiguration either, since it is happening both with a recently updated 12.2 and a completely fresh install of 12.3. I haven't had a chance to change anything in the fresh 12.3 install away from the default configuration.

    Of course, this is all guess work. I'd welcome any advice on tracking it down more definitely. I'd like to find out exactly what I updated on 21 Mar 2013, but I don't know where to look for the log.

    One simple method
    Code:
    rpm -qa --last | less
    scroll down to 21 Mar 2013 what it shows.

    I have a more complex line:


    Code:
    rpm -q -a --queryformat "%{INSTALLTIME};%{INSTALLTIME:day}; \
    %{BUILDTIME:day}; %{NAME};%{VERSION}-%-7{RELEASE};%{arch}; \
    %{VENDOR};%{PACKAGER};%{DISTRIBUTION};%{DISTTAG}\n" \
    | sort | cut --fields="2-" --delimiter=\; \
    | tee rpmlist.csv | less -S
    
    or
    
    rpm -q -a --queryformat "%{INSTALLTIME}\t%{INSTALLTIME:day} \
    %{BUILDTIME:day} %-30{NAME}\t%15{VERSION}-%-7{RELEASE}\t%{arch} \
    %25{VENDOR}%25{PACKAGER} == %{DISTRIBUTION} %{DISTTAG}\n" \
    | sort | cut --fields="2-" > rpmlist

    xorg-x11-Xvnc is in there. I guess it could be that after all, although it's strange that yast is the only affected app. patterns-openSUSE-kde4_yast is also in there, my original suspicion. Is there a way I can revert to the previous version of either?

    Default Re: Yast dialog blank after update

    The "pattern" packages do not contain software. They trigger the install of a bunch of packages that together form a pattern. This one triggers the use of QT on the Yast modules, so that it will visually integrate nicely in KDE.
    So, since Xorg packages were included in the update, I'd say something re. the video driver might be borked, can you reinstall the driver, if you have one installed?
