    YaST problems!!!

    Alright, I have a problem. I used an online tutorial to set up the updates on my computer though YaST. Now that it was updated, I can't seem to get anything in yast to work! I click on any button, and it thinks for about 2 or 3 seconds, then it stops thinking and jsut does nothing. Someone help, please!

    Any error messages? What did you update when you went through YOU?

    I selected the zzz all option, then right clicked the package list and selected update all if available, or something like that. And no, no error message.

    If you go to;
    yast>software>change source of installation
    what is set to be active?

    I can't check, none of the links in yast work.

    do you get any errors when trying to launch yast from the command line?

    How do I do that?

    Alt + F2 >yast>options>run as root
    If this doesn't work
    Open a terminal. Type 'su'. Type in your root password. Type 'yast'.
    If nothing happens try 'yast2'

    same type problem

    Various things in Yast just have ceased to work. Errors upon start-up include

    no namespace
    import 'encoding' failed
    no language package
    import 'language' failed

    Any suggestion would be appreciated.

    Boot from your SuSE source disk #1 and do a "system repair"...
