    Change YaST2 From German to English


    I just got a new server from Hetzner, but the YaST2 they installed is in German! I wanted to install some new packages, but I don't speak German

    Is there any way to change the language of YaST2 to English?

    You don't need to change it to german.

    Abbrecken = Abort
    Verlassen = Leave
    Aktion = What Action?
    Suche = Search

    Its not hard to figure out.

    Its best to figure out what the package is that you want (by doing a search) and then leaving YAST2 GUI.

    then, in the command line, type:

    yast2 -i packagename


    yast2 -i apache2

    Will automatically boot YAST2 and installed apache2 for you.

    Try using google to translate if u get stuck, but once u get used to YAST2 in german its no big deal. After your stuff is installed you wont need yast2 again.

    Yast2 Convert to English

    Yes. It works.

    Type "yast2" in console.

    Go to: System --> sprachen waehlen --> Pull down menu --> Select English

    Then press "ALT+R" to initiate the change (You'll see in the bottom right hand corner of the window where you selected English from the pull down menu a word 'uberlaven' or something, the R is highlighted. Press ALT+R to use that command, which I think means next or confirm".

    yast2 will do its ninja thing. When its done, close yast2.

    Load yast2 again and it should be in english!

    Thanks Tailseh!
