Software Management Failing to Load

http://forums.opensuse.org – Hey everybody! I'm in the process of updating a computer from openSUSE 10.3 to 11.2 KDE4. I did a clean install of 11.2, but kept the /home partition from 10.3. I now have a variety of problems in 11.2, but I will focus on just one here: software management/online update. I'm using YaST in runlevel 3 because X11 apparently doesn't like my monitor, but that's another problem that I'll deal with elsewhere (I'm loading YaST so that I can install drivers). I load yast2 and go to Software->Software Management. It proceeds to "Initialize the target system" and "Load the configured repositories". At 100%, it quits without any error message and returns to the main YaST screen. zypper lr -d outputs: Code: # | Alias        | Name                  | Enabled | Refresh | Priority | Type  | URI                                                            | Service --+--------------+-----------------------+---------+---------+----------+--------+-----------------------------------------------------------------+-------- 1 | repo-debug  | openSUSE-11.2-Debug  | No      | Yes    |  99    | NONE  | http://download.opensuse.org/debug/distribution/11.2/repo/oss/  |        2 | repo-non-oss | openSUSE-11.2-Non-Oss | Yes    | Yes    |  99    | yast2  | http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.2/repo/non-oss/    |        3 | repo-oss    | openSUSE-11.2-Oss    | Yes    | Yes    |  99    | yast2  | http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.2/repo/oss/        |        4 | repo-source  | openSUSE-11.2-Source  | No      | Yes    |  99    | NONE  | http://download.opensuse.org/source/distribution/11.2/repo/oss/ |        5 | repo-update  | openSUSE-11.2-Update  | Yes    | Yes    |  99    | rpm-md | http://download.opensuse.org/update/11.2/                      | zypper up outputs: Code: Loading repository data... Reading installed packages... Nothing to do. I'm assuming this isn't normal behavior. Shouldn't I be able to use software management to install new software? This is bringing back very, very bad memories of 10.1. :( Any help will be greatly appreciated. The system is some eMachines motherboard with Intel i845 chipset, Celeron 2.8GHz, 1GB DDR, and 80GB WD PATA. After installation, the KDE applet was unable to perform an online update, but going directly through YaST worked, so I think things are mostly up to date. (Distributions)
