Thread: Upgrading from RC2 to Final?

  1. #1

    Question Upgrading from RC2 to Final?

    Quick question. If I install OpenSUSE 11.2 RC2 now, would I be able to just run a regular software update from within openSUSE once the final version is released, or would it be a bigger process of re-installing?

    If done correctly, yes.

    Having the appropriate repos for 11.2 and don't ignore conflicts if there are any.

    So, in layman's terms... What are the exact steps I should take between installing RC2 and updating to Final?

    'sudo zypper dup' has been working for me. I've taken one system from
    M8 to RC1 to RC2.

    A) Install

    B) Choose only repos for 11.2

    C) Run updates regularly

    Detailed step-by-step please? I'm not exactly an expert with Linux, most of my experience is with Ubuntu, and repositories is one of the most confusing aspects for me of Linux.

    Repos for 11.2 can be detected by the fact, that they have 11.2 in their URL.

    If you don't know, if a repo is suitable, don't add it.
