Default Big-time Yast Issue!

I'm running Suse 9.3 PRO, and one day Yast decided it was never going to respond to anything whatsoever (including installing packages, changing settings, etc.) I can get the Yast app running but when I click on a specific system component (ie "sound" or "Date/Time") The little clock comes up like it going to open up the process I clicked then... nothing... As far as I know I haven't changed any major system settings to cause this crash, and I always be sure to log in as root before getting into the app so I that's not the problem either. On a side note, if it comes down to re-installing the entire program, is there a way to achieve this without blowing the entire OS away?

Does YaST work if you run it from the command line? The command to use is
Do you see anything in your logs in /var/log?

Do a: rpm -qa|grep yast|xargs -i rpm -V {}
from the command line, nothing much more than timestamps should be different. If there is, you can do an RPM forced freshen to reinstall it without screwing up too much.
SuSE Rocks!!
