Are you running the x86_64 version of SuSE 10.1? I am and I have the same
problem. Most of YAST works, but the "Online Update," "Software
Installation," and "Installation Source" modules all crash.

I manually updated the kernel and kernel source, and checked the 10.1 update
directory for the latest yast rpms, but that doesn't help. Everything else
seems to function quite well, including vmware. The only other program that
doesn't work is zen-updater, which had been working.

If you find a solution other than reinstalling, please post it here.

My 32bit version of SuSE 10.1 at home doesn't have this problem.
