New YaST-Web released 1.0.1

April 1st, 2009 by

We have released a new version of Web-YaST with following changes:

  • Added translation support on the client side.
  • Added ruby-gettext
  • Split off ruby-rpam and ruby-polkit in single packages.
  • Switch off IPv6 in lighttpd cause it has produced some undefined errors. (esp. on 64bit)
  • Added package dependencies concerning rails. The last few weeks have shown that RAILS versions are not really compatible. So many problems have been happened due different RAILS versions on the systems where YaST-Web has been installed. Please use RAILS 2.1
  • Cleanup code.

The newest packages can be found here:



It would be nice to get some feedback. Bugzilla would be a nice option  🙂

Thank you !

    Not working for me (as usual 🙁 )

    First I cannot access webinterface. After configuring /srv/www/yast/config/lightppd.conf (change adress from “” to localhost, disabling ipv6, changing port) it starts. But. I cannot login at all. Maybe it has connection to error in terminal: /usr/sbin/yastwc: Symbol `FamErrlist' has different size in shared object, consider re-linking

    While the login process there could happens and general error 500.
    The reasons for that could be an undefined behavior of the function “getpwnam”:

    We are trying to find the reasons for.
