YaST2 freezes occasionally
This document (7007146) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Service Pack 1
Reported scenarios amongst others:
* trying to add an iso image as installation source
* clicking "Abort" during Softwaremanagement
Killing the YaST2 process is the only way out of this.
As a workaround, run "qtconfig" as root and change the GUI style to "Plastique"
Furthermore, running yast inside a terminal window is not affected as well, only YaST2 is having problems.
When logged in as unprivileged user, open a terminal, become root with: "su - " then run qtconfig from that terminal.
Instead of running qtconfig, simply execute in a root terminal:
echo "style=Plastique">> /root/.config/Trolltech.conf
It doesn't matter if a different style already is in that file, the last occurrence wins.
