    Default I need to re-visit 'upgrading from 42.3 to 15.0 while 'live'

    First off I am a very new user(as several of the members here know).
    PLEASE, don't make this a 15.0 bash like the other upgrade while live was used for!

    In YaST there were four repositories checked:
    (OSS, non-OSS, Update, update-Non-OSS)

    So I changed only the URLs in those four(and not the title which also included 42.3) and ran zypper dup.


    I had some warnings in the blue dialog in the install terminal, and rebooting gave me a 'BIOS' error and went through some kind of process twice before booting to the Leap 15 login screen. I could not capture, nor can I remember exactly what those messages said. My bad!

    Should I have changed 42.3 to 15.0 everywhere in the YaST repositories and not just the URL?
    Should I change the ones that are unchecked and rerun zypper?

    PS> is there a log of the install? Where if so? I found 2 log file in /var/Log/ for 'boot' and 'zypper', and dopn't know if they are what I am looking for.

    do you have an nvidia graphic card did you uninstall the propitiatory driver prior to upgrade?
    if yes then the old driver module is probobly the cause of your issue and either removing it or re-installing the LEAP 15 driver is the fix

    to answer some of your questions
    changing the URL is enough although having 42.3 in the repo name might cause confusion but that won't effect the system and the repo's name can be changed latter
    the upgrade (zypper) log can be found at
    Code:
    /var/log/zypper.log
    but I doubt that will be of help the Xorg logs would be of more help
    Code:
    /var/log/Xorg.0.log
    before we give you more advice tell us your current repo's
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    and some info about your hardware
    Code:
    lspci | grep VGA

    No, I have a Radeon HD5450 graphics.

    Thanks for the locations. I found some on my own, but they didn't look like what I was seeing during the upgrade.

    BTW and FYI> the login black screen errors are ACPI errors. I have tried to turn it off in grub, but it still shows. My BIOS does have an ACPI Hard Disk Reset that is DISABLED. Not sure if I should or shouldn't.

    This?
    https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1093298


    Should be harmless, I get them too.
    Basically, it's just the kernel being more picky about BIOS problems and printing a warning because it cannot know whether this possibly might cause real problems or not.

    You can apparently "hide" the messages by adding loglevel=0 to the boot options, but that would disable *all* kernel messages (and even the boot splash it seems).

    The only way to "fix" it may be a BIOS/Firmware update if available.

    The installation log/output of the package installations should be in /var/log/zypp/history, btw.

    Unfortunately not possible, the HP Compaq DC7700 CMT has the only BIOS I could find.
    i tried ACPI=OFF at the end of the kernel line. The messages are still there during boot. And since it seems to not be a critical problem I will live with it.

    i will take a look, thanks.

    That's not a good idea anyway.
    And as you noticed it won't help either. The messages are actually about some "broken" data structures in the firmware data tables, not about actual problems with ACPI. Those "problems" were there before (they are "hardware bugs", so to say), just previous kernels silently ignored this without warnings.

    To clarify the repo table, I edited to replace 42.3 in the rep name(s) and added Packman and libdvdcss after the upgrade.

    @BillLyte

    FWIW, I added, at the very end,
    Code:
    splash=silent quiet loglevel=3 vga=current
    to my Yast2 Boot Loader 'Kernel Parameters' - and those ACPI messages went away for good.

    Good Luck!

    Yes Thanks, that stopped the ACPI messages. Being a total neophyte at this, I don't know what else it did. I need to check out 'loglevel' to see what it does for my peace of mind.
    But I had to do it in grub.cfg because I am having a problem opening the Boot Loader section in YaST, (I posted about that in the applications section.)

    Don't worry, loglevel=3 merely ticks down the sensitivity of your messaging one notch. You will still get important error
    messages - just not the ones that do not need urgent attention (like useless ACPI errors).

    Take Care!
