This is more an annoyance and wanting to learn from my mistake that a “production problem” per se. 2 or 3 weeks ago I downloaded and burned the openSuSE 11.1 32 bit x86 iso. Last night I installed it; a fresh install on a machine that had formerly been running openSuSE 9.x or 10.x. During installation I cherry picked what apps & services I wanted… the machine is to be a firewall with minimal services running. I was surprised when the installation completed to see it’s running 11.2, Milestone 4.
I’m not a guru, but I’ve installed openSuSE on a number of machines since v8.x or so, as well as Red Hat/Fedora and Ubuntu. So far the configuration is going well other than “ifconfig” wouldn’t rename one of 3 network adapters so I had to use “ip address…”. I would rather have been on a stable release, but it’s my home network’s firewall so I may live with 11.2 if it’s reliable.
Has anybody run into this or have an idea where I may have told the installation to update to 11.2?
