I’m a new user just having installed 11.0. Everything is working well so far with one exception:
YAST will not load/execute under KDE4. Under Gnome, everything works as expected, but trying to invoke YAST under KDE4 fails. The application shows up on the task bar for a few moments, asks for root password, then acts like it’s loading, just to go away with no completion.
Is there an error log or something where I can look for this problem? If I log out of my KDE session, and log back in under Gnome, YAST invokes and runs just as expected.
Any feedback will be appreciated, as I’m a real beginner at Linux. Thanks in advance!
SUSE 11.0 and kde4. I’m not surprised it’s flaky.
Open a terminal and type:
/usr/bin/xdg-su -c /sbin/yast2
see if that starts it, and if any errors display in the terminal
When invoked as you recommended, the terminal screen says:
QT GUI wanted, not found, falling back to GTK
or something close to that, then YAST ncurses text-mode does start and work correctly. The library in question is already installed on the system however… could this be a memory-management failure? I only have 512Mb ram on the laptop in question.
Otherwise, how do I go about resolving the conflict?
You may need to install yast2-qt and yast2-control-center-qt.
JJMT, you were right on the money. I don’t know why these modules weren’t picked up automatically during “dependencies” checking, but they were missing. Installed and everything is running fine under KDE now.
Thanks very much for the help!
