Advice on upgrades and restricted formats

Hello all,

I recently upgraded a box from 11.3 to 11.4. The 11.3 box has all the restricted formats stuff described in the stickies.

Now, the upgrade wanted to “delete” all the existing repos so I allowed it to go ahead. I thought I would just go through the sticky stuff for 11.4 and pick up updates etc that way.

However, when I tried this, I got loads of dependency issues.

I will have several upgrades from 11.3 to 4 to do shortly and am asking if anyone has any advice on the best way to deal with this problem.

Cheers - AK

If you have replaced the main repos
oss
non-oss
updates
with the 11.4 versions, and have only these
and run zypper dup

Later you can add in Packman for 11.4
and use the switcher on it
