    Default Upgrade 11.0 RC1 --> 11.0 GA

    I'm hoping that this isn't, in the end, a stupid question, but I'm running 11.0 RC1 and wondering when 11.0 goes GA, will there be any issues going from the RC to GA? I'm thinking "no" but just wanted to confirm that all one needs to do is change repos from factory to the 11.0 distribution tree and all is good. I'd hate to run into an issue where I have to downgrade something, and then that requires a downgrade of something else and it leads to this massive domino effect where it's just easier to download the GA version and re-install.

    Cheers....

    Hey katanacb

    I don't think you need to worry, changing the repo should be sufficient and just run an update against everything should put you onto the 11.0 branch. (I'm not 100% on that, but thats what I'm doing). Most updates since RC1 have fixed pretty much any of my issues with OpenSUSE 11.0 so far.

    Any problems, and you can download the DVD, and simply run it as an upgrade option during setup, as opposed to a new installation.

    All the best,

    James

    Quick bit of helpful information that I just read!

    To do a distribution upgrade when the RTM gets released, then login to a console as root and issue the following command:

    Code:
    zypper dup
    Good luck,

    Check your repos if you have updated your RC1 install, you might be set up already to grab packages from the 11.0 repos. In that case your set for release and will maybe have 3-4 package updates once the 11.0 repos go live. If thats the case your running 11.0 final right now.

    Just issued the
    Code:
    zypper dup
    command on my system, and it updates everything very nicely. So you can do that when RTM comes out to make sure you are all up to date.

    As Quickshade says, check your repositories, and just make sure you have the Suse 11.0 repos selected on the day.

    Where do you get these repos?
    Thanks,

    You'll be able to find the repos here:

    Index of /distribution

    They have not yet been rolled out.
    When they do go into YaST --> Software --> Software Repositories

    Modify the factory ones to the 11.0 ones.

    Once this is done run:
    sudo zypper dup

    I installed GMC yesterday and the OSS and NON-OSS repos have been acting funny since then.

    NON-OSS: Index of /distribution/11.0/repo/non-oss
    OSS: Index of /distribution/11.0/repo/oss

    Are those correct for final release?

    I ran sudo zypper dup and it told me this:

    Code:
    Reading installed packages...
    
    The following packages are going to be downgraded:
      monsoon terminfo-base terminfo tack suspend pinentry-gtk2 pam_thinkfinger nfs-client 
    ncurses-utils ncurses-devel libwps-0_1-1 libwpg-0_1-1 libwpd-0_8-8 libthinkfinger 
    libtheora0 libsmbios-libs libogg0 libncurses5 libmpfr1 libical0 libgssglue1 
    libgpg-error0 libgcrypt11 libexempi3 libdaemon0 libcdio_paranoia0 libcdio_cdda0 
    libcdio7 libcap2 libblocxx6 libbeagle1 gutenprint gtk-sharp2 gnome-vfs-sharp2 
    gnome-sharp2 glib-sharp2 glade-sharp2 gconf-sharp2 art-sharp2 PolicyKit-gnome-libs 
    PolicyKit-gnome 
    
    
    The following package is going to change architecture:
      monsoon 
    
    
    The following package is going to change vendor:
      monsoon 
    
    
    Overall download size: 12.9 M. After the operation, additional 51.0 K will be used.
    I hesitate to downgrade anything, but why is it telling me to downgrade? I checked my repo list, should the OSS and NON-OSS be disabled? Or should they be set to not "auto refresh"? When I first installed openSUSE they were listed with priority "120" - when I removed them and re-set them, they became priority "99" like the rest. Is that correct or should it be different?

    Yes, that is the final )

    I am just about done installing mine .

    Were those packages from a 3rd party repo? Or were they from Factory?

    Well I installed what I thought was openSUSE 11 GM yesterday, but it must have had some old packages that were then downgraded - I dunno. I did the downgrade of the packages and all seems ok. Nothing blew up.

    Will I need to run "sudo zipper dup" again at any point or can the software updater take it from here? What exactly does that do?
