Package conflict while upgrading from SuSE 11.1 to 11.2


I am trying to update two 64-bit PCs from SuSE 11.1 to 11.2. Both are having the same problem:

On the “Installation Settings” screen, under “Packages” is a message: “Cannot solve all conflicts. Manual intervention is required”

If I click on “Packages” a dialog box opens with this message: “problem with installed package kernel-default-base-”.

The conflict resolution is either “keep kernel-default-base-” or “keep kernel-default-”

Anyone know how to proceed and why?


After installing openSUSE 11.2 and updating the kernel I have version now which is newer than the choices you have, but I guess I would take kernel-default- since it is newer. In the past, updating openSUSE has not worked all that well for me. So consider the possibility that you might need to do a clean install if the update does not work. Make sure you change ALL of your repositories to those used by openSUSE 11.2 and do another update for all newer packages.

Thank You,

I’m getting the same message when I attempt to upgrade from 11.1 to 11.2 and have another thread going here on the subject.

How much in general does the upgrade from 11.1 to 11.2 … - openSUSE Forums

My kernel version is a bit different -… but the message and conflict resolution is exactly the same.

So… is it OK to keep the 2.6.27… version with 11.2?
