    Default Yast not working correctly


    I have had this problem for about 2 weeks now. Quite a few of the
    modules in yast give me this error. Error loading language plugin
    /usr/lib64/Yast2/plugin/libpy2lang_perl.so libperl.so cannot open shared
    object. I can't say when it happened for sure. I was installing
    different programs to play and copy DVDs and installed the Gnome base
    system to give it a try around the time it quit working. I am using
    Opensuse 11.0 64 bit KDE 4.1.3. I can install packages and manage
    repositories, but the one click install does not work or the
    partitioner. I have found a few posts with same problem, but everything
    in them has not worked for me. Only other choice I can think of is to
    reformat and install again but would rather find a way to fix it. I have
    just about got everything how I want it.
    Thanks for your help

    The particular file '/usr/lib64/Yast2/plugin/libpy2lang_perl.so' is
    provided by yast2-perl-bindings package. Hopefully, its as simple as
    reinstalling this package with:

    zypper in --force yast2-perl-bindings


    Any of the gurus around here have any suggestions?

    I tried zypper in --force yast2-perl-bindings with no change. I then did
    zypper in yast*. Still did not work. Then I completely uninstalled yast
    with zypper disabled all the repos but the DVD and then reinstalled. It
    still gives me then same error on some of the modules when I try to use
    it. There must be something that I installed that is in conflict.

    Thanks for your help

    Ok, you have 64 bit system, so what is the output of

    rpm -ql perl |grep libperl.so

    For reference I get this (with 32 bit system):

    > rpm -ql perl |grep libperl.so
    > /usr/lib/perl5/5.10.0/i586-linux-thread-multi/CORE/libperl.so


    Check that you have 64 bit perl package(s) installed.

    "Ok, you have 64 bit system, so what is the output of

    rpm -ql perl |grep libperl.so"

    I am getting

    /usr/lib/perl5/5.10.0/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/CORE/libperl.so

    It is showing 64 bit installed
    Thanks

    What does 'zypper ve' report? I would make sure all the recently
    installed packages are 64 bit. Maybe also worth reinstalling perl
    packages? Can't think what else might be the cause..

    >"What does 'zypper ve' report?"


    Dependencies of all installed packages are satisfied.

    I also tried rpm -ql perl |grep libpy2lang_perl.so just to see. It came
    back with nothing(don't know if that helps). I then tried zypper in
    libpy2lang_perl.so and got this.

    'libpy2lang_perl.so' not found.
    Nothing to do.

    One good thing about all of this I am learning a lot about zypper and I
    like it. I will just keep trying things and maybe wait till 11.1 come
    out to format.

    Thanks for all of your help
