Had an awful time updating from 42.1 to 42.2 using zypper dup. Eventually, I gave up because my system was left unusable and did a network install. It worked nearly unattended and 42.2 is humming right along. One thing I would like to change is the lock out after a period of inactivity. My computer is in my home and no one but me touches it. I rarely shut it off since I run a boinc research project in the background. However, after a period of time and I don’t know how long that is, I have to re-enter my password to continue.
I can’t find a setting to alter this. I checked yast security and desktop settings for display. If this was a laptop, or an office computer, I wouldn’t mind. But, at home, its an annoyance
When I tried using zypper dup, I got messages that I was out of disk space. It seemed odd to me and no matter what I deleted to make room, I kept getting that message and then the effects of a partial upgrade began to appear. Each reboot made it worse. I finally gave up and used a CD install. I choose the upgrade method to save my home stuff. I had to enter a minimal amount of info and the install went fast and automatically. I was called away and when I came back, I had a new system! There have been none of the problems posted elsewhere. But, I didn’t realize how many customizations I had done over time that have to be redone. That gives me a chance to try something fresh and new.
The return key worked and got the space key back!
I looked at the config file and don’t want to mess it up. What setting should I change?
# subvolume to snapshot
# filesystem type
# btrfs qgroup for space aware cleanup algorithms
# fraction of the filesystems space the snapshots may use
# users and groups allowed to work with config
# sync users and groups from ALLOW_USERS and ALLOW_GROUPS to .snapshots
# start comparing pre- and post-snapshot in background after creating
# run daily number cleanup
# limit for number cleanup
# create hourly snapshots
# cleanup hourly snapshots after some time
# limits for timeline cleanup
# cleanup empty pre-post-pairs
# limits for empty pre-post-pair cleanup
