Just crashing when missing some fonts is not a good approach. This was before I
guessed that the missing fonts were indeed the first problem - and before the
situation where the fonts are unuseably big. Could this be alleviated by
printing an error saying which packages to install to make yast2 work, instead
of printing a stack trace?

Perhaps the real problem is with the pattern. Without desktop but with X
implies that X programs can be run via a remote connection, e.g. ssh. Obviously
that doesn't need an X server, even less a desktop, but X apps need to run.
(And "with X" doesn't really say whether an X server is included or whether
that refers only to X apps.)

It is also not an unusual or weird system, it is very common to set up Linux
systems without desktop since on a server in the corner that is not needed, but
having X apps available is IMHO opinion required to stay up with the
competition from France, South Africa, or Redmond.
