Thread: Leap DVD 15.4 upgrade where mounting part gets stuck

  1. #1

    Default Leap DVD 15.4 upgrade where mounting part gets stuck

    Hi guys,
    I'm a lurker here at the forum and have been using Opensuse for couple of years with success.
    I was in process of upgrading my 15.3 Leap to 15.4 but during DVD installation I can't get past where the mounting partition starts and... seem to fail.
    No error messages just seeing the hourglass icon for +30 minutes. I've tried different mirrors and its iso with same results. SHA256 sum are always good.
    I thought my DVD player was broken so I tried using the old 15.3 leap DVD and I don't get the mount issues here.
    What can it be?

    Thanks.

    With no error messages being thrown up there's little to go on...

    Would it not be better/easier to do an on-line update, ensure 15.3 is fully up to date, change the URIs of the repositories and perform a "zypper dup"

    Full details are here: https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:System_upgrade

    Thanks for the input.
    I actually tried the live upgrading route first, I thought it was going to be a less of a hassle than burning a dvd etc.
    But early in the process (when I was in init 3) there were dozens of conflicting files present and I was asked to choose from several options (i.e. either force the upgrade, keep the old files and so on).
    Ultimately I didn't want to mess up my system by choosing the wrong option. Mostly the files in question were media related I believe but I also noted there were system files such as Kernel pre-empt (?) and others.

    One thing I did do after adding packman repo was to implement it as default rather than the keeping system set option.

    It is difficult to comment on this when we do not know what repos you had active at the factual upgrade. Nor we we do know the exact zypp dup command you used.

    I have no idea what you mean with this. I never heard of "making a repo a default", nor do I understand "keeping system set option".

    I have upgrade three (3) systems from 15.3 to 15.4 not long ago. Took me at most an hour for the whole with all checking and setting pre-upgrade, and a little bit of care (like adding Packman again) after it. Not the timeing is very important here (depends of course much on your network speed), but it shows that not much hassle was to be dealt with.

    3rd party - I only have packman enabled. Others are standard, didn't touch them. Zypper command :
    zypper --releasever=15.4 dup --download-in-advance

    Well after enabling Packman one is recommended to switch it to default rather than System packages. Hope it's clearer now.

    Some multimedia packages have been removed from packman, perhaps you were prompted for a vendor switch to openSUSE?

    It would help if you posted the output from:
    Code:
    uname -a
    Code:
    zypper lr -u
    and finally the output from the zypper dup command so that we can see what the actual conflicts were, post that to https://paste.opensuse.org/ and provide the link.

    May I ammend the zypper lr -u? We can check if you have the correct $releasever strings in place with
    Code:
    zypper --releasever FOOBAR lr -u

    That is called "vendor switch to Packman" and means (when doing zypper dup --from <alias or name of the Packman repo>) that all packages that are already on your system and are also available on the Packman repo, will be replaced by those on the Packman repo irrespective of their version indications (that may result also in some dependent packages from the Packman repo becoming installed). There is no "default" settiing of anything there.

    I will attempt live upgrade and post the output of zypper dup soon, thanks!


    Yes, multimedia files and codecs (all the "dirty" ones) were replaced by Packman. Maybe I should switch back to system -> do an update first -> and then proceed with upgrade.

    uname -a -> Linux linux-5wbg 5.3.18-150300.59.90-preempt #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Aug 9 08:49:53 UTC 2022 (127973b) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    zypper lr -u (forgot that I also have Nvidia repo added) ->

    @hcvv ; Yes that was what I meant. Once I switch to Packman the default setting that were in place gets override.

    This is what I did (and variations are of course possible, as long as one knows what one is doing and why).

    1. make the present version up to date: zyppr patach (or zypper up).
    2. check that all repos have the string --releasever instead of 15.3 in their URIs.
    3. disable all non-standard repos (that includes Packman).
    4. Log out all users and switch to the console (Ctrl-Alt-F1).
    5. Log in as root.
    6. Switch off the GUI (systemctl isolate multi-user) so that not much software is running.
    7. zypper clean
    8. zypper --releasever 15.4 ref
    9. zypper --releasever 15.4 dup --allow-vendor-change.
    10. Take a coffee or so while more then two-thousend packages are downloaded and installed (you may want to do step 8 in two steps, seperate download and install, but always use --releasecer15.4).
    11. Stop the system shutdown -h now.
    12. Start the system and keep your fingers crossed.
    13. You can now log in in the GUI again and use YaST if you prefer; As you have a 15,.4 system now, you do not need --releasever anymore.
    14. Enable the Packman repo and do the switch zypper dup --from <the alias or name of the Packman repo>.
    15. Done.
