I have a real problem being able to read any of the text in the text version of Yast.
As you can see in the screenshot, the default colours make it impossible to read, well, maybe it’s just my eyes, but the problem remains.
Is there a way of changing them?
Hm, it might depend on the config of the terminal emulation you use.
I find mine very usable: http://www.xs4all.nl/~hcvv/yast.jpg

Yast -> system -> /etc/sysconfig-editor -> System -> Yast2 -> GUI ->
Thanks for the replies.
hcvv - you were right, running yast in a konsole window definitely was affected by the colour scheme.
Chris Maaskant - also right, although this solution fixed it in the VT and all non-gui modes, which was what I needed most.
and don’t forget grandpa’s way:
-hold down Ctrl & Alt and then press F1 (or F2-F6)
-log in (as root to use yast, or yourself for non-root needs)
-type yast and hit enter (WOW, that is big and clear!!)
-do your yast stuff, then
-log out by typing quit (or just leave it open, it will be there
when you come back–just REMEMBER it is root [hint: see the RED??])
-(to get back to your still running desktop) Ctrl+Alt+F7
very retro cool, huh?
