warning: the ncurses frontend is installed but does not work
You need to install yast2-ncurses to use the YaST2 text mode interface
Tracing the issue using "sh -x yast" shows it tries to load /usr/lib64/YaST2/plugin/libpy2qt.so.2 and /usr/lib64/YaST2/plugin/libpy2ncurses.so.2
which are both available on the system.
More information about /etc/ld.so.conf, /etc/ld.so.cache and ldconfig is available via "man 8 ldconfig".
