Hi all...

A buddy sent me this:

In the meantime I put 9.0 on one of my machines, which was a bit
painful since there is a severe X-server bug which makes the machine
crash the moment after you log into a KDE session (the patch is
already available of course via YOU).

Are any of you guys having this problem? If so, what did you do about
it? Also if using YOU is the only way of fixing it, how does someone off
line take care of it?



Don't login via X on console screen F7. Switch to the F1 console window (ALT+CTRL+F7), login as root and run yast. No need for X at all. Full YaST functionality so you'll be able to choose YOU and get updated... character based instead of GUI but you can figure it out quite easily.

I assume the question was: 'how does someone off line take care of it?'

Yast don't need X, but YOU tha can be run in terminal need internet-access... right ?
