Hi. I’m sorry if I’m duplicating anything here, I did look around but I’m notoriously bad at finding what I’m looking for. Anyway…
I recently used Wagon to upgrade from 11.1 to 11.2 and am now having some problems with YaST Software Management.
The most obvious problem in use is the appearance of what I think are supposed to be dialogue windows. They appear full-screen, with a gradient-background, no text and no buttons. They take keyboard input which seems to control buttons, but I’m not sure as none are rendered.
I had a couple of those pop up when trying to run the software manager. After that it exited and told me to check the log. Unfortunately, my log file seems not to exist!
It also opened an error dialogue with the following:
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'YUINoDialogException'
what(): No dialog existing
YaST got signal 6 at YCP file /usr/share/YaST2/clients/sw_single.ycp:563
/sbin/yast2: line 440: 6157 Aborted $ybindir/y2base $module "$@" "$SELECTED_GUI" $Y2_GEOMETRY $Y2UI_ARGS
Presumably because of these errors, the update applet also fails to work properly.
I’m sorry that I can’t be more clear about this, but I’m a little lost.
Part way through the zypper dup process I apparently ran out of space on my root partition. I decided that, with all the changes that had taken place, it might be best to restart before attempting to fix it… in hindsight that was a bad move.
fsck is missing. My system won’t boot for anything but filesystem repair and I’m having trouble getting that to work. Oh. Dear.
If you have the install media for 11.2 (DVD or CD) use it. It looks like you will need to install fresh: Format /
and keep /home
If your root partition is small (low disk space?) you might even want to re-jig the whole setup. In which case a Live cd will let you boot up, mount your /home and back it up, before a complete format.
I’ve done something very silly. I forgot to install all the 32 bit packages before installing my proprietary ATI driver. Now, naturally, my video output is corrupt.
I know that in the past I’ve got around this, issues a boot option that let me into the console, but either I’m using the wrong one (it’s been a while) or something has changed. So I’d really appreciate someone who knows these things better than I reminding me which option I need to issue.
I’ve been googling madly but I just can’t seem to find it :\
Edit: Oh, yeah, and runlevel 3 doesn’t help, it’s still corrupt at that level.
