Yast bug in 11.4?


I am using 11.4, and Gnome (though I think it also occurs with other DEs and WMs). When I select patches and the like through Yast, and download them, the screen that pops up on download / applying the patches seems to be missing the very first characters on the left-hand side. I have resized the windows, but this does not cure the problem.

Is this a known bug, or how do I fix it?

So I am using openSUSE 11.4 and KDE on my main system and in the GUI based YaST2 Perform Installation / Actions Performed Windows, I am not missing any characters on the left. Perhaps it is somehow video related? You could open a terminal window and run the following command and give us the output:

glxinfo | grep "OpenGL"

Further, I have a bash script that can install a useful hardware listing including video you can find here:

Thank You,

i see it with my current 11.4 with KDE4…i never bothered to see if it
was a bug or not…never even asked here about it (i just ignore
minutia like that and follow the greater: If it ain’t broke don’t fix
it. [it ain’t broke, and not too hard to read the YaST window either])

like my friend in Austin i guess it is a video problem (i have intel,
how about you?)

however, you could see if there is a bug logged, start here:

if there is not one, and you log a new one return here with the bug
number/URL and i’ll add my hardware to it…

Hi both,

Thanks for your help. I had a quick look around, and took compiz off and now things seem to be OK. Seems strange that this was also occuring in the ncurses (text, not graphics) version as well though…


Your post here helps me a lot so thanks for posting guys.:slight_smile: Anyway, I found an interesting article awhile ago which may also interest you, you can read it here: 2012 Mayan Apocalypse contributes to booming disaster industry.
