I have just run into a very perplexing problem with Yast.
It has happened twice over the last few days while I have been
setting up samba, rebuilding kernels , and doing alot
of system changes.
The symptom is Yast loses it's color screen, and comes up in
black and white text-mode which has non-functionality
The non-functionality is that it refuses to let me change
installed packages. How? Well, when you select a package
to install, reinstall, or remove; then hit F10 for OK,
a confirmation screen appears which says "discard changes?"
"yes or no". If you answer no, you are returned to the selection.
If you answer yes, you discard any change!!! So no changes
can be made.
It happened the first time when I recompiled my kernel to
include ppp support for my NE2000 card. I was forced to
Things ran good, until I tried to get OSS sound drivers
going after rebuilding my sound module for awe32 support.
It wouldn't install saying it couldn't recompile the
soundshield. I used to be able to run a midi program
called drvmidi, and it reports that it can't open
Then Yast just went out on me again; so I'm
asking either how to restore it, or what is going on.
The rest of the system seems to work OK.
But I can't use yast to reinstall ncurses, do you think that
is what is wrong?
