    Default how to update?

    I just installed the M7 version.
    My question is how to set repo so that it can automatically update to the lastest version? Or just use the defualt setting?

    I think the milestones are like snapshots without updates. You need to move to the Factory repos. Here is a link to the DistroWatch.com guide. I used this guide and seems to be working. I'm still downloading updates though, so we'll see. Step 4 didn't seem to work for me so I just skipped it.

    Check your grub.lst before rebooting to avoid this

    I am using the following list of repositories to do upgrades from Milestone to Milestone by "zypper dup" and for the same Milestone by "zypper up":

    http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/games/openSUSE_11.1/

    As for Nvidia drivers, VMware or virtualbox, you need to recompile them each time you get a new kernel
    Nvidia drivers: execute the script downloaded from nvidia's site (e.g. NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-185.18.36-pkg2.run)
    Virtualbox: /etc/init.d/vbodrv setup
    VMware: vmware-modconfig --noconcole --install-all (+ insert "export VMWARE_USE_SHIPPED_GTK=force" at the end of /etc/vmware/bootstrap to avoid the infamous Pb: mouse ungrabs outside of the 640*480 upper left part of the screen)

    unfortunately, "this" happened. More serious, the file initrd-kernelversion-default lost during update. Maybe there is a bug.
    I had to reinstall. Using Factory is really dangerous.

    It isn't a "bug", because updating using factory is not officially supported.

    The standard testing model is to install the milestone images. If you use factory instead, expect breakage...
