A few questions about 11.4 RC2...


I would appreciate some answers before actually trying 11.4 RC2. Right now I am using 11.3.

  1. Once installed, which repos to use so that online update works?

  2. Which command(s) and repos to upgrade from 11.4RC2 to 11.4 GoldMaster (GM)?

Thanks a lot for your help.

I would read through the following article about openSUSE 11.4 RC2.

11.4 RC2 is Available

I added the following repository:

Index of /suse/factory/Essentials

This got my multimedia working. Now I also added in the Videolan repository just long enough to pull in the libdvdcss file, but then removed the repository as we want to get all media files from Packman. Consider that openSUSE 11.4 is VERY NEW. So, no need for anything else as it has the very latest stuff already.

One final note, in just 12 days, openSUSE 11.4 goes final. Unless you want to do some testing, it is OK to wait for the final product and save yourself some effort. If you don’t mind loading it twice, then go for it of course.

Thank You,

Just saw this posted for using Packman in openSUSE 11.4:

Index of /suse/openSUSE_11.4/Essentials

Thank You,

  1. Leave it as is. When 11.4 comes out soon, just make sure you have the official 11.4 Oss, Non-Oss and Update

  2. With the 11.4 repos in place: zypper dup

N.B. If you have Packman in place as James suggests. Post ‘dup’ you will need to use the package switcher on Packman.
