    Default upgrade from 11.2 to 11.2 using zypper

    I'm I crazy? I did 11.3 to 11.4 and it went smoothly, so I'm thinking I
    can try 11.2 to 11.4. Thoughts?

    some might say ok...i say NO, see here:

    http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:System_upgrade

    and

    http://doc.opensuse.org/products/ope...ha.update.html

    they ARE different, i know at least one will say:
    11.3 > 11.4 ok
    11.2 < 11.4 bad!

    personally, i always backup to an off machine place, and do a format
    and fresh install with /home not formatted...ymmv

    Not supported via zypper dup. Supported via booted DVD.
    Video will give problems, though, because it is too different.

    Depends on the system. I did a test upgrade of 11.2 to 11.4 on a Dell
    D610 laptop (grabbed config files from my home directory on my production
    laptop), and overall the upgrade from DVD worked well.

    The only issue I've run into is that compiz-manager doesn't seem to want
    to run automatically, so I end up with no window decorations at all.

    Haven't dug into that issue very much. But otherwise, the upgrade seems
    to have gone quite smoothly in that test.

    Ok, thanks for the info. I'll let you know how it goes. If the upgrade
    doesn't work I can always do a clean install.

    Just make sure you do a backup of your critical data first, just in case
    there are problems. That's why I have been running tests using a spare
    machine.

    Origin 11.2 x86 with nVidia video card
    + 11.2 packman repo
    + 11.2 nvidia repo

    Target 11.4 x86 + 11.4 packman repo + 11.4 Nvidia repos


    procedure with zypper and online repo.
    as explained at SDB:System upgrade - openSUSE
    execution with full preload
    #>zypper dup --download "in-advance"

    So I made the plunge today; upgrading from 11.2 to 11.4 using "zypper dup" and... so far everything works like a charm. Here's the script I used:

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    
    # disable old 11.2 repos for now; will delete them later
    zypper mr --all --disable
    
    # opensuse repos
    zypper ar -f -n "openSUSE-11.4 OSS"     http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.4/repo/oss/     repo-11.4-oss
    zypper ar -f -n "openSUSE-11.4 Non-OSS" http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.4/repo/non-oss/ repo-11.4-non-oss
    zypper ar -f -n "openSUSE-11.4 Updates" http://download.opensuse.org/update/11.4/                    repo-11.4-update
    
    # packman repos
    zypper ar -f -n "Packman-11.4 Essentials" http://packman.inode.at/suse/openSUSE_11.4/Essentials packman-essentials
    zypper ar -f -n "Packman-11.4 Multimedia" http://packman.inode.at/suse/openSUSE_11.4/Multimedia packman-multimedia
    
    # nvidia and mozilla repos
    zypper ar -f -n "Nvidia-11.4"  ftp://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/11.4/                         nvidia-11.4
    zypper ar -f -n "Mozilla-11.4" http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_11.4/ mozilla-11.4
    
    # xtra kde repos
    zypper ar -f -n "KDE-11.4 Updated Apps" http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/UpdatedApps/openSUSE_11.4/ kde-updated-apps
    zypper ar -f -n "KDE-11.4 Extras"       http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Extra/openSUSE_11.4/       kde-xtras
    
    # change priority of some repos; default is 99
    zypper mr -p 90 packman-essentials
    zypper mr -p 90 packman-multimedia
    zypper mr -p 90 nvidia-11.4
    zypper mr -p 90 mozilla-11.4
    
    # give me a sec to review repos
    zypper lr -d
    sleep 120
    
    # update
    zypper ref
    zypper dup --auto-agree-with-licenses --download "in-advance"
    The only issue I have after the upgrade is that I cannot output sound to speakers and headphones simultaneously. However I suspect it's a pulse audio setup problem and not a result of the upgrade.

    One thing to note: Initially my print jobs would not finish. They were all displayed as "stopped". In the cups web interface for each job it displayed "/usr/lib/cups/filter/hpcups failed". After some looking, I found out that the most probable cause was an outdated print driver. So thru the cups web interface I modified the printer and updated the PPD driver and now my print jobs finish.

    So if you do a updated with zypper like it did, you will have to update the printer driver.
