Thread: SLES SP 2 Update Boot Hangs on loading yast2

    SLES SP 2 Update Boot Hangs on loading yast2

    After updating from SLES 11 SP1 (x64) to SP2 via DVD, the boot stops on loading yast2. Pressing "ctrl-C" makes it continue with no ill effects, seemingly. We're using it to run ZENworks 11.2.2, with a local Sybase database. This area is certainly not a strength of mine. Where do I need to look to see why this is happening? If someone wants to see some log files, simply let me know.

    Hi
    Stopping on YaST on the console during boot?, that sounds like the auto
    configuration didn't complete after the update.....

    There are logs down in /var/log/YaST2 which may indicate the error.

    I'm not sure if these items are helpful, and these were the only references to yast2 in a couple of log files that seemed suspect to me. This problem isn't critical but it sure is annoying.

    Hi
    If you use zypper from the command line, I wonder if it's missed some
    YaST updates...
    Code:
    zypper ref
    zypper lu

    Didn't look like any of the updates were yast related, just some new ones. I'll restart the server a little later, just in case.
