    I wouldn't as such. Just keep your current /home (do not format) and do the as new install. It much less painful -

    I've done that upgrade without problems. Only minor dependency issues to resolve.

    the official way is as caf4926 has already told you...and, here is the
    'official' proof of that, read the information box at the beginning of

    the fix is pretty easy, really. (you are just a format away from repaired)

    I agree with caf4926 and platinum, but if you have the time and don't mind playing, try the upgrade and if you don't like it, do a fresh install.
    Just make sure you know what extra software you have added and where to find them to reinstall after the upgrade.

    If it's just a plain desktop for standard usage, i.e. mail - browse - office, I would do a fresh install.

    If you've been through a lot to get things configured the way you want it, i.e. webserver - NIS - samba - NFS - static IP's etc, I would suggest updating, since that leaves your /etc as it is. No need to reconfigure things mentioned.

    zypper is part of the installed system and some users just changed their 11.0 repos to 11.1 and used zypper dup.
    But I do not recommend this.
    Use the DVD, select Installation
    Proceed with New Install and just make sure your current /home is not formatted. This assumes you have a /home
    If you post the result of this from a su term:
    Code:
    fdisk -l
    I'll see what you have
