Thread: YaST2 is not working

  1. #1

    Default YaST2 is not working

    Hello, I just installed openSUSE 13.1 with xfce as the wm, and YaST2 starts up, but none of the items work when I click on them. Also, the install/remove software part of YaST2 does not even run. I tried running it in a terminal, but it didn't run, and no error messages or anything were displayed. How can I fix this?

    Try launching software manager using below command

    Code:
    su -c '/sbin/yast2 sw_single'
    --
    Version 3.10.2
    openSUSE 13.1 (Bottle) (x86_64) 64-bit
    Kernel Linux 3.11.6-4-desktop

    You have to run that in a terminal. Did you? Absolutely nothing got printed in the terminal?

    Try running it in a terminal window if you haven't - you should get some
    output then.

    Sorry, I should have clarified. I did run it in a terminal window, and it didn't execute, and no output appeared at all. It just threw me back to the terminal.

    Try running only "su -". It should ask you for the password at least. If not, you have a very broken
    system, or something else is very wrong.

    It does ask for a password, but no output occurs when I run the command to start yast2.

    How can I fix this? Would attaching the log that yast2 generates help?
