So can we assume this means the openSUSE 11.4 upgrade went well for you? If so, we are happy to hear of your success. Please, if you do run into any issues, just ask for help if you need it and good luck.

Thank You,

Good for you, and welcome to the forum. What’s the question?

Updating on 64bit PC went without a hitch. My experience on old 32bit is as follows.

If anyone has googleearth running ok, i would appreciate some help.

No question, just a comment.

They are here, as many work towards the goal of good solid programs for open source.

Yes the upgrade went well. I have upgraded 3 machines, one being a IBM laptop R40.

The only issue I have seen was on the postgresql upgrade, and that has been solved. Which of course is not an OpenSuse issue.
