Thread: Updating Open SUSE

  1. #1

    Default Updating Open SUSE

    Hi friends,
    Can you kindly enlighten me on how to online upgrade from OpenSUSE 10.1 to the latest version.

    Also, I have a file with iptables rules written, which i want to run automatically at startup, but it does not run at startup, instead I have to use restore command, i.e iptables-restore < "file_location" everytime to implement firewall.

    Kindly help.

    Before we go anywhere, could you copy paste the results of the following commands:

    cat /etc/*release
    and
    uname -r

    The first command will show us the exact version of your operating system and the second the kernel version.

    I agree. But it is not "CAT ..." but "cat ...", lowercase. Probably you
    did not, but that is how it arrives to me, because you used bold, and
    you did not use code tags.

    When pasting here computer commands and such, please use a
    CODE BLOCK, so that the forum software doesn't do silly things like
    converting URLS to tiny urls or otherwise hide or alter the commands you
    entered. You get them by clicking on the '#' button in the forum editor.

    Yeah I use bolding because I *assume* most of the folks here use the web interface so it shows up properly.

    It doesn't. Not for any interface. Please use the CODE tags.

    That is also a very bad assumption. Many of the "experts" who are most likely to
    answer your questions use NNTP. I almost never invoke the web interface.

    For the upgrade:

    Since you are that far back, I recommend the best method as:

    1. make good backups;
    2. preserve your /home;
    3. install fresh and clean from the 13.1 DVD; and
    4. put it back together

    I agree with that.

    And, for the record, I'm pretty sure that there never was an openSUSE 10.1. It was just SUSE 10.1, as "opensuse" did not exist back then.

    Well, according to
    Online upgrade method
    , this procedure was provided first with
    openSUSE 11.2, so you can not use it with 10.1.

    Instead, you can use the traditional
    Offline upgrade
    method
    instead. I would not recommend going more than two releases
    jump each time: 11.0 -> 11.2 --> 11.4 --> 12.2 --> 13.1, all with
    offline upgrades.

    On each step you will have to fully update the machine and ensure it is
    working properly before attempting the next jump. And also make sure to
    do a full backup before jumping.

    I have done 11.4 Evergreen directly to 13.1 myself, but... I would not
    recommend it for you, as you are not familiar with the procedure.

    When you reach 11.2 you can switch to the online upgrade method instead,
    if you wish, but then you will have to do a single release upgrade each
    time: no jumps.

    That's a totally different question that you will have to ask about when
    you reach the target release, ie, after all the upgrades.

    And there's a reason why these forums are almost dead compared to other places.

    But let's not go there.
