I prefer to use yast-x11 on the cubieboard, it takes a looong time to
start but then runs OK (over ssh). There are 2 problems with it:
1) The software management shows 37 autoinstall packages, including
alsa-oss, bash-doc, glibc-extra, openssh-helpers, perl-HTML-Tidy,
zypper up shows nothing to do, as does yast-ncurses, and both show the
locked packages apache2-mod_perl mariadb php5
Why does yast-x11 want to install a pile of stuff that is definitely ot
needed by anything, like the -doc packages?
Why is this difference in behaviour between x11/ncurses versions?
2) No keyboard input is accepted anywhere in yast.
This stdout/err of yast-x11 says why:
libEGL warning: DRI2: could not open /dev/dri/card0 (No such file or directory)
xkbcommon: ERROR: failed to add default include path /usr/share/X11/xkb
Qt: Failed to create XKB context!
Use QT_XKB_CONFIG_ROOT environmental variable to provide an additional search path, add
':' as separator to provide several search paths and/or make sure that XKB
configuration data directory contains recent enough contents, to update please see
Ooops, no X11 keyboard input installed! To fix:
zypper in xf86-input-keyboard (another 27 packages)
I installed yast-x11 with
zypper in yast2-x11 yast2-control-center-qt libyui-qt6 xauth
which installs ca 265 rpms, so something is missing a dependency on
basic keyboard input. Or is this intentional? Otherwise I'll file a bug.
I don't expect this to be specific to armv7hl, though it's triggered
there because it's a smaller minimal system to start with.
This is on factory, cubieboard, and I ran zypper up previously (giving
me e.g. a new kernel).
