trying to get the Software Updater Applet to work right on a new install I managed to break the software installer in Yast2 here are two screen caps of the error message. one of the packages I package I updated was yast2-qt-pkg. I hope this can be fixed without a reinstall.
Did you checked the log files for further information?
and maybe also:
Since this is a new install would it be wise to just reinstall it? (for the fourth time First time today though it’s just about 1AM)
Maybe you just have to reinstall the package yast2-qt-pkg
or try to downgrade it, if a reinstall doesn’t work.
DVD is handy. I think I’ll just reinstall and try and get the software updater applet to work right, messing up QT in KDE is a bad move massing it up in Yast2 is really bad.
> DVD is handy.
what version of openSUSE are you installing?
did it come from http://software.opensuse.org/ or some other source?
are you certain the DVD is perfect? did you media check it prior to
the point being that you might reinstall from a bad DVD until the cows
come home–and never get sweet milk…
Running openSUSE 11.1 and KDE 3.5
I checked Media and checked memory after the second install and replaced the install media. I had some hardware issues on my first two installs. This last install seems to have done the trick. This machine is memory poor and I will fix that next month. It seems to be playing OK now and it’s going through all the software updates slowly.

updating slowly is a VERY good idea!!
LOL I went to Repositories, OpenSUSE-11.1-Update, and did an update unconditionally. Just over a gigs worth of updates.
System is back up. .mozilla, .thunderbird and doccuments folder transfered over from previous install.
Just as a point of reference, I’ve seen those errors before and were the result of corrupt qt packages from a borked update.
If you need to get in to Yast, you can use the command line version. Just open a terminal, log in as root, and type “yast2”. This will open up a menu-driven interface that should be close to the same as the GUI version of YaST.
Anyways, glad you got it working.
