YaST2 Broken with YUIPluginException Error on xorg-x11-libxrender-7.4-1.20.1

This document (7018387) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP4


When attempting to access the YaST2 GUI (this does not effect the ncurses version) an error will appear that will, in part, say:

"terminate called after throwing an instance of 'YUIPluginException'"



A patch has been released fixing the issue. Update to at least xorg-x11-libXrender-7.4-1.23.1, using zypper, to resolve:

# zypper update

or at least:

# zypper update xorg-x11-libXrender-7.4-1.23.1
