"Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 keyQXcbConnection: Could not connect to display :0"

That means the YaST process (runnint as root) did not get permission to connect
to your X server (running as a normal user). You had an X authentication
problem, not a YaST problem.

Make sure to use an appropriate command to gain root privileges as well as
retaining permission to connect to your X server, such as gnomesu, kdesu, sux.
If you use su or sudo, you will have to ascertain access to your X server in
other ways (e.g. with the xhost command).
