I tried using yast in my shell ( i have the root authority). The yast ncurses did appear in my shell, but i can't control the panel. For example, it says "press F1 for help", but pressing my F1 just resulted in decrease of my screen light (the default function of the F1 key in mac). So even though I launched the yast2 ncurses, I couldn't use it.

As for the installation sources, you meant suse or r?
