Okay, I am getting a bit closer. I looked via "whereis" where yp is installed
to and noticed that only yp.conf in "/etc" was there. So I reinstalled the
yp-tools and now there is also "/usr/lib/yp" found.
But starting the Yast2 module "answering_machine" gets me a message like:
Map group.byname not found. Reason: The request arguments are invalid
Map passwd.byname not found. Reason: The request arguments are invalid
I have German errors coming up, but I guess it should be as written here in
Any further ideas?
