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

Welcome to ruby world. BTW ruby also have throw and catch, but for different
purpose. See


Thanks for your help with this!
