Installing SuSE 11.2 or higher: before the first reboot the CLI version of YaST looks horrible. Reboot or second CLI fixes it.

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/08/19

Since SuSE 11.2, when installing then the CLI version of YaST looks horrible on the first (Ctrl-Alt-F1) console before you do your first reboot.


  1. Try one of the other consoles,
  2. Reboot once.

It still fails at SuSE 12.x.
