I don't know if it helps much, but the exact some problem emerged for me
in SuSE 8.1 about a year ago. Whichever class I choose, it's missing. I
must have installed something that broke it, maybe even YaST or patches,
but I cannot tell for sure.
I never tries to mend it, so I cannot propose a solution. I can't use LyX
and LaTeX locally, so I just do so remotely (via SSH) on a Fedora cluster
whose administrator is not myself. I never tried to resolve the issue, but
here's the advantage of having responsibility delegated to someone else (I
also get regular upgrades of software). The other option and what I con-
sidered at one point is a re-installation/upgrade, which I had no com-
pelling reason to do.
