If it runs in text-only mode, how can I determine its current
screen size (i.e. how many lines and characters per line)?

bash has env vars, $LINES and $COLUMNS, that will give screen size.
The variables are there, but they are not exported:

$ echo $LINES,$COLUMNS; env | grep LINES; env | grep COLUMNS
60,178
$

Using "stty size" sounds better to me. Maybe sh@ knows a wrapper for
this in YaST.

Use our documentation, please :)
