Thread: Migrating from 42.2 to 42.3

  1. #1

    Default Migrating from 42.2 to 42.3

    Hello,

    I need to migrate from 42.2 to 42.3. The system upgrade page talks a lot about live upgrade, and says very little about offline DVD upgrade excepts it cleans up the system. If I get a 42.3 DVD, does it have an upgrade option that I can choose? I am obviously not a super user, and this seems to be a fairly simple approach.

    regards -- Roger

    Yes, it will detect your installed 42.2 and will offer an upgrade option.

    If you run into any problems, Roger, you can always come back here for help. Many of us would be pleased to assist.

    Thanks very much. Just need to get the DVD and I should be set. Usually SUSE works pretty smoothly, and hopefully I will be upgraded before I know it.....

    Biggest problem I have is knowing when the release becomes unsupported. I should have figured it out when the periodic updates stopped.

    When nervous about mucking things up, still am occasionally, with enough HD space it was helpful and useful to organize a separate root partition eg 50GB and separate /home.

    Then did clean installation of newer version openSUSE using the new / root and /home partitions.

    Once knew up and running, changed home, or copied or moved, my essential documents across.

    BTW always do back up essential documents.

    As found my way around, became more adventurous.

    You can also change the repo URL's "openSUSE_42.2" part to "openSUSE_42.3", then run
    Code:
    sudo zypper ref
    sudo zypper dup
    If in doubt, show us your repos first:
    Code:
    zypper lr -d

    Should show us this, anyway. It is usually important to only have the main repos enabled until after the upgrade, and some non-standard repos can actually mess you up.

    Hello,

    Here is the result. I know there is a way to put this in a confined space box with up and down arrows, but it has been a while...

    Please, use CODE tags, the # in the editor, around your output. I've editted your post, so you can see the difference.

    Thanks, I will remember that. And write it in my Linux book in case I don't....
