Is there something I’m missing in YaST to show ruby exceptions or errors?

Well, your problem is too generic exception catcher at
It catches all exceptions, which in general I do not recommend as it catches
beside user errors also programmers ones. At least you can change it to
`rescue RuntimeError`. And for sure always log what you catch unless you
re-raise it, so it is not silent as now.
And because you catch exception, then global exception handler is not in

Errghh, I would never have found that. I’ve never seen a language that uses
rescue as an exception handler! Anyway, I now have the actual error now (which
is apperently that “log” IE log.debug() can’t be found in

Thanks for your help with this!
