I am using OpenSuse 10.3. After a recent update I cannot start the Install/deinstall software under YaST any more. I get the following error message when I try to open Inastall/Deinstall sowtware:
YaST got signal 11 at YCP file /usr/share/YaST2/clients/sw_single.ycp:187
/sbin/yast2: line 386: 30609 Segmentation fault****$ybindir/y2base $module “$@” “$SELECTED_GUI” $Y2_GEOMETRY $Y2QT_ARGS
I read through the forums for this error message and the solution given in many places, which worked ok for everybody with the same problem, does not work for me. I am talking about executing as root the following commands:
remove /var/cache/zypp/zypp.db and /var/cache/zypp/zypp.db-journal
then run ‘zypper refresh’
When I run zypper refresh my zipp.db file is created, but it is empty and it is giving me the following eror message in the console:
Does anybody have any idea what my problem is?
Many thanks in advance
thanks for the advise! But it does not work, because it has a whole bunch of dependancies (around 30 for the rpm-python which is needed for the smart installation )…it is a nightmare (an impossible one) to go over this without something like YaST.
I guess it is not only the YaST that had gone wrong after this awful update!
does anybody have other ideas how can I solve my problem??
