Gnome 3.6 installation on minimal 12.2

Hi,

As I deeply dislike upgrading I thought I would install Gnome 3.6 starting from the minimal openSUSE installation.
Found guides how to add proper repositories and perform system update and… three times in the row ended in unusable system.

The respective Gnome patterns fail to install or require removal of other patterns which I consider essential.

Could anyone advise me how to proceed with the task of installing Gnome 3.6 starting from a functional and up-to-date minimal installation of openSUSE 12.2?

Cheers, Andrzej

Did you consider
Index of /repositories/GNOME:/Medias/images/iso

You have to select two patterns (yast): gnome base system and gnome
desktop environment. Yes, it appears that some things are uninstalled,
but it is not so, it is just the pattern name (minimal is not compatible
with gnome, thus it is removed). Accept it.

Finally, remove individual packages from the selection you do not like,
or add those you do.

Thanks for the tip! I had no idea such images existed.
