open suse 11.3 update failure related to

I tried to update my 64bit system from 11.1 to 11.3. Reboot into kde4 did not work. I was able to log into fvmw. I did a /sbin/yast2. yast2 output the following error:

relocation error:/usr/lib64/ -ZNSt15_list_mode_base7_M_hookEPS_version GLIBCXX_3.4.14 not defined in with link time defined.

I had no internet connection, and cannot do an on-line-update.
I used the DVD image I downloaded from the website. The MD5 checksums agreed.

Does anybody else have similar experience? How do you fix it?

You should have done a new install


Like caf4926 told you, it would be better to make a clean install in passing from 11.1 to 11.3. Save all your data and give it a go. :wink:
