Hello experts

I'm currently running a Linux SLES 10 SP3, YaST worked fine some days ago, but now, when entering yast, the following error is displayed:

production_server:/# 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 interface

Pls any help will be greatly appreciated :(!!!

    As the error message said, you may need to re-install yast2-ncurses package from a installation cd/dvd like
    # rpm -i /cdrom/pkg/yast2-ncurses.rpm

    This package is a character based user interface.

    Have you trid

    # yast2

    Also you can rebuild the yast stacks by command "ldconfig -v".

    Yes! did as suggested and worked! Made my day sir.

    It's the first time I ever get this message, was this error generated by some previous installation made through yast? I don't remember doing any change at all in the past days back when it was working.
