YaST segfaults when installing Qt Creator

I’m using openSUSE 11.1.

I’ve been trying to install Qt Creator from here: Software.openSUSE.org. I at first just installed the one at the top of the list, which happens to be the Qt 4.5 one. It wouldn’t run so I uninstalled it and removed the repo it added. I then tried to install the other one, and now whenever I try to install either version, neither installs and I get a segfault message from YaST. This is the message:

YaST got signal 11 at YCP file Wizard.ycp:36
/sbin/yast2: line 437: 12646 Segmentation fault      $ybindir/y2base $module "$@" "$SELECTED_GUI" $Y2_GEOMETRY $Y2UI_ARGS

This is in an xmessage window, so I had to type it all out, I can’t copy+paste from it.

Anyways, I did some searching after this, and I found lots of “you need to downgrade your qt apps”. But I’ve already removed the qt45 repo, and when I try to upgrade my stuff, there are none to upgrade.


In Yast - Software Management Filter by repo
select system
scroll thru and find all red color QT packages and click them, that should roll them back

Unfortunately, this did not work. There was only one of them, and afterwards trying to install from software.opensuse.org still gave segfaults.

I can still install from the repos, if that means anything, I just can’t install anything from software.opensuse.org

Also, this is a fresh install. Since I don’t have any data on here that I really want to keep, should I just do a reinstall and not try to install Qt Creator?

You don’t really make sense. Sorry.

Open a terminal and post the result of this:

zypper lr --details

:slight_smile: Sorry if I don’t make sense, I’m new to OpenSUSE. I come from Ubuntu and Arch.

First if possible check in Yast - Software Management
Filter by repos and select

If there are any packages installed from there, delete them.
When that’s done - delete that repo.

If you really want those packages I can give you a repo to add, but first - Tell us if you use kde3 or kde4?

In the mean time, open a terminal and become su

Now do this:

zypper ref


zypper dup

Logout and back in


I’d like the repo (qtcurve), but really anything that will make my GTK apps blend in with my Qt apps will make me happy.

I am using KDE 4. I generally use GNOME, but I thought with my new installation I’d give it a try.

The repos to add are:

kde4 desktop from Build service will give some updates
Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/STABLE:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.1

kde4 community
Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.1
I’m not certain it will provide the GTk stuff though

The way to install packages is with Software Management. Don’t use the OneClicks from webpin. It’s OK to find apps, but add repo’s manually - The repo’s can be found here:
Index of /repositories
Bookmark it

is your system working any better yet?


Is it safe to add the repo for Qt Creator and install it through that?

Should I uninstall my NVidia repos and add the one in the index, or is that fine the way it is?

Keep Nvidia as it is.

What is the url of the QT repo you want to add?


I think I would use this one
Index of /repositories/KDE:/Qt44/openSUSE_11.1

you will just have to experiment, but the qt you posted looks like it might be qt45. Not so good for your setup.
I think.

Qt Creator isn’t in that repo. And there is a Qt45 repo right next to it. Looking at the pattern in the structure, I’m guessing it’s either qt42 or qt3.

Try the repo you planned - but it might be troublesome

Well I guess you were right. It wouldn’t run. But luckily I’m not getting any segmentation faults. Maybe Qt Creator is not available for earlier versions of qt?

I could try the git version, but I think that would be even worse.
