--- Comment #11 from Steffen Winterfeldt <snwint@xxxxxxxx> ---
Do I understand correctly that with startshell=1 things work fine and you get
a shell on a (visible) console?

Then, when you start yast, you get a black screen with movable mouse?

If so I suspect an xorg, not a yast, problem.

Does yast (the black screen) react to keyboard input? That is, does Alt-r,
then Alt-a exit yast?

Can you try different video modes?

(1) add boot option 'brokenmodules=drm' to turn off kernel mode setting
(2) additionally to (1) choose a Video BIOS mode (via F3 at the boot screen)

Do some of these give better results?
