openSUSE 11 yast problem


I recently set up a fresh openSUSE 11 with gnome. I have severe problems with my yast2. I can only use it in text modus. If I want to use yast2 the authentication windows pops up and then after typing in my root password nothing happens. It just won’t start. If I try to call it from commandline - the yast main menu shows up, but no module window :frowning: A waiting cursors pops up and then nothing - no more windows. Strange. Is there a log file?


First place I would look is /var/log/YaST2/y2log.

I had something similar… solved it by going to users as root and giving myself a new root password.
