None of the text input fields in any of the yast modules accept
keyboard input. No reaction to such.
How do you start it? locally? x forwarding? vnc?
ssh. I always install X clients on headless systems. If nothing else,
nedit is the number 1, 2 and 3 tool for system configuration. That was
easy (thanks to the kind soul who had packages). yast-x11 however just
has dependencies on the kitchen sink. openSUSE dependencies for "minimal
system" are plain foobared. Debian doesn't have that problem AFAICT.
The keyboard input in X11 yast was dead because the several hundred MB
of stuff yast-x11 pulls in didn't contain anything to handle keyboard
input(!!). I think it was libyui-qt6 (plus dependencies) that was
needed. xauth is missing too. Sorry it appears I forgot to post about
the keyboard problem.
There may be other fundamental problems. I don't expect installing
yast2-x11 to give me a running X server. It does. xdm is running. OK if
it's required for console logins - which I'll follow up later, my
HDMI/VGA adapter died. Or is the serial login the only one supposed to
work on the cubieboard image out of the box? On x86 I'd expect runlevel

Can anyone reproduce that?
yast2 over ssh starts up in 7s. yast in a terminal (also ssh) 49s. Just
to show their start windows, not doing anything useful yet. Both are
de-facto useless at this point (yast2 shows a big pile of stuff to
install for no reason, still looking for why, no-one has time for yast
on a Commodore C64). Memory use around 155MB, both started.
Unsetting DISPLAY does not speed up yast.
