When I launch Yast, it seems to start fine. But when trying to get it to do something like Online Update or Software Management it dies. It will bring up the screen and go through reading the repositories and just quit. When I run it from the command line I get this:
Run command: /sbin/yast2 sw_single &
YaST got signal 11 at file /usr/share/YaST2/modules/PackagesUI.rb:294
/sbin/yast2: line 440: 7814 Segmentation fault $ybindir/y2base $module “$@” “$SELECTED_GUI” $Y2_GEOMETRY $Y2UI_ARGS
I’m running openSUSE 13.2 with Plasma 5. (64bit)
Toshiba laptop with 8G memory.
It shouldn’t make a difference whether you use Plasma 5 or something else.
But, where did you install Plasma 5 from? A possible reason for crashes are incompatible KF5/Qt5 packages.
Please post your repo list:
zypper lr -d
Another reason that would cause a crash when refreshing the repos is having libproxy4-config-kde4.
Actually it shouldn’t be installed as YaST conflicts with it exactly because of that, but verify that you don’t have it installed anyway.
Also, for clarification:
Does the ncurses version work, or does that crash as well?
Does only the software management module crash, or are the crashes more general?
The file /var/log/YaST/y2log should contain more details about the crash, so please post the last lines immediately after a crash.
Well, that’s a possible source of problems.
If you have KF5 packages from the standard repos installed, they might crash with Qt 5.5 and vice-versa.
Make a full switch to those repos to be sure there’s no incompatible mix installed:
Those two repos are incompatible and having both can/will lead to problems.
I’d recommend to remove the videolan repo and make a full switch to Packman to be sure. Everything that’s available from videolan is in Packman too, and much more.
