Graphical) Yast Bootloader not starting

As usual, when Tumbleweed updates Grub components, it tends to forget other OSes on the machine, but no problem, start Yast → Boot Loader, and just press OK and it reprobes for other OSes and adds them to the list (if ‘probe foreign OSes’ is selected of course)

well it happened today again, but this time, I could launch Yast, but then Boot Loader wouldn’t start… so I launched it through shell command and here is the message, any hint ?

linux-o039:~ # yast2
QStandardPaths: wrong ownership on runtime directory /run/user/1000, 1000 instead of 0
Run command: /sbin/yast2 bootloader &
terminate called after throwing an instance of ‘YUIPluginException’
what(): Couldn’t load plug-in qt
/sbin/yast2: line 448: 16679 Aborted (core dumped) $ybindir/y2start $module “$@” “$SELECTED_GUI” $Y2_GEOMETRY $Y2UI_ARGS

BTW : If someone has that issue, a temporary fix is to launch yast in text mode (‘yast’ as root)

I just discovered that I have the same problem since today. I guess that one of the updates which came today causes this issue.

Same problem, after updating yast only goes ncurses

Fixed with a zypper dup updating

Ran into this with no Software Management running either. Manually updated those packages and now works fine. Thanks.


Thanks a lot! It is working again.

Thanks a lot, it solved the issue :slight_smile:
