    Default migrate 10.3 64bit to 11.0 32bit ??

    hello

    i want to migrate from my 10.3 64bit to 11.0 32bit

    is this simple possible with the "upgrade" funktion in 11.0? or only throu save the configs and make a new installation and recover the configs?

    thanx

    Upgrading from 64 bit to 32 bit sounds like trouble to me and I wonder the state your system will be in when you've done the upgrade. I think rather broken... but that is my gut feeling speaking and not from personal experience.

    I would recommend to go for the re-install & save and restore of your relevant config and data (also to keep the system as clean as possible from unused/unneeded packages).

    Cheers,

    Have a lot of fun!

    Agreed. This is essentially a brand new system anyway (you wouldn't
    want your 64-bit libs lying around from the previous install) so might
    as well backup or just install fresh on partitions that can be wiped
    like /, /opt, /usr, /lib, and whatever else you can manage. Assuming
    /home is partitioned separately you could just do a fresh install
    choosing to format / and leave /home as it remounting as /home in the
    "new" system.

    With all that said is there a reason you don't just go to 64-bit in the
    next version?

    Good luck.

    Doubly agreed. Even though the OS has the same name, they're really two
    different OS'es because of the architecture differences.

    It won't work.

    Format and install clean. It's the only way.

    My humble opinion always go for a clean install , and suse will give a warning that you,re going to install 32 bits version on 64
    bits BOX.
