First of all, remove all 11.1 update repositories using zypper rr.

Next, edit /etc/cron.weekly/opensuse.org-online_update. Change the last line to:

Code:
${upcmd} --quiet up -y -l ${skipInteractive} >> /var/log/suse-update.log 2>&1
The additions are -l to accept any licenses and also collecting the output in /var/log/suse-update.log. You will see later that this will have messages about packages changing vendor.

Disclaimer: Remember this will accept anything the Evergreen repo puts out as an update and may have deleterious effects on your machine. Use this at your own risk.

That said, it works fine for me so far, touch wood.
