Thread: how do we find running distro version?

  1. #1

    Default how do we find running distro version?

    i am upgrading from 11.0 to 11.1
    due to power fails i had to restart the upgrade several times.
    i had locked and protected the xorg-server as the livecd is not able to make intel server.

    i am still able to boot into kde
    how do i find which distro is running??

    linux-3jg0:~ # cat /etc/SuSE-release
    openSUSE 11.0 (i586)
    VERSION = 11.0
    linux-3jg0:~ #

    since yesterday i am doing this zypper dup.
    now only another 14,8 mb of download left.
    that is another 16 hrs.

    server gives only 390b/s

    do you think this file will say 11.1 after this update?

    Hello,

    This kind of speed is weird. Is it coming from your ISP or connection-type ?
    If not, what repositores have you configured?

    Anyway, with that kind of speed, I would advise you to buy a install DVD, wich has a lot of packages in it, and with the lastversion of opensuse.

    Bye bye

    i have configured all opensuse 11.1 suggested repos , i think they are all in US. the cable outage in panama canal must be the reason i get such poor service.
    the sites within this side of the world work fine.
    the connction is 384kbps/sec.
    prior to cable failure i downloaded livecd iso from there only in 3 hrs.
    till the fault is repaired i cannot get any faster downloads.

    i seem to be able to download files from pbone.net manually much faster.
    but where is this zypper keeping the downloaded files?
    i could not find the cache/archives.

    for zypper dup do i have to configure 11.1 repos?
    i have done with 11.0 configs.

    Can you use a mirror closer to you?

    any of the mirrors i try to configure returns yast could not make folder or something to that effect and then i get error in loading package manager.
    the mirror i configure does into serveces.
    it does not work at all.

    I suspect your installation is in an inconsistent state. It would be best to use the DVD Repair System. Or if you can't do that, re-install all YaST* packages, zypper, PackageKit, plus everything from the Updates repo.
