It worked fin two days ago. ... in the meantime I installed some programss . ... but how can I make it work again . If I try to start a root session and I write the same root password which doesn work with Yast, it works . So how can I repair this ?

    Does Yast open up if you run if as root from a terminal, iirc you should type this:
    Code:
    su
    rootpass
    yast2
