YaST No Longer Works in SUSE LINUX 9.3

Problem

Running YaST2 {Install and Remove Software} doesn't work. Then - from the command line as root - running YaST, selecting {Software | Install and Remove Software} yields error message:

/sbin/yast: line 207:  8315 Segmentation fault      $ybindir/y2base menu ncurses

Solution

  • In YaST, {Change Source of Installation}, disabled the location where I copied the dvd. Apparently something's not right there. The added location http://packman/iu-bremen.de.suse/9.3 works ok.
  • (20050820) Should've used cp -a instead of plain cp according the SuSE's Beginner's Guide

New DVD. New chances. Copied dvd like this:

mkdir -p /local/install/SuSE-10.0
cp -a /media/cdrecorder/* /local/install/SuSE-10.0
