Thread: Upgrade from image file

  1. #1

    Default Upgrade from image file

    My currently installed OpenSUSE version is 42.1. I have the OpenSUSE 42.2 iso file on my hard drive. Is it possible to mount it using an application such as acetoneiso and then upgrade from there? If so, how can it be done?

    It should be possible to add it as repo and then run "zypper dup" to upgrade.
    You don't even have to mount it, YaST/zypper does support ISO images directly (at least there's the option in YaST->Software Repositories).

    It should also be possible to create grub menu entry that would boot the installer, but I'm not sure how to do that or whether it would be possible to use the ISO image directly or you have to "extract" the files first.

    OTOH, you can also copy the image to an USB stick and boot that, without having to burn a DVD.
