    YaST2 won't run

    Code:
    root$ yast2
    yast warning: the qt frontend is installed but does not work
    warning: the ncurses frontend is installed but does not work
    You need to install yast2-ncurses to use the YaST2 text mode interfac
    root$ yast
    warning: the ncurses frontend is installed but does not work
    You need to install yast2-ncurses to use the YaST2 text mode interfac
    yast2-ncurses in installed, so what is the problem?

    SuSE 9.1.

    The first thing I would do is re-install Yast2.
    The second thing is "export PATH=/path/to/yast2-ncurses' (not the rpm but the library file)

    I'm having the exact same problem. I select yast2 and nothing happens. When I try to run it from the command line I'm getting the same message you got.

    Also running SUSE 9.1

    Did you find a solution?

    A response to your question suggested re-installing yast2. Did that solve the problem?

    I'd appreciate any advice you could give--since you've just had the same problem less than a month ago!

    Did you checkout this thread just one down (was) from yours on the exact same problem?

    No use having two threads going on the same problem. You should follow and contribute to the existing thread.
    SEARCH FIRST... ASK SECOND Read the JL 'Community Help Posting Guidelines' before posting in the forums.

    If Linux doesn't have the solution, you have the wrong problem. ... Please do not send me a PM asking for help...

    Sorry about that! I saw the other thread and posted to both of them because I wanted to make sure that the two individuals who also had the same problem saw my query. However I should have PM'ed one of them and just posted on one thread.
