I’m running 12.2 on an acere Aspire 5733z-4851 laptop. I used the Synaptiks utility to add a 1.5 second delay to compensate for the touch pads over sensitiveness. I added the Packman, KDE AND QT5 factory repos for 12.2. Then ran sudo zypper dup. Uninstalled apper and packagekit. I have set the grub boot delay to 1 second, Then updated it a couple of times. It is also reporting 4.9.90 and is running smoothly.and also set the session manager to not confirm logout. All in all the system is running smoothly and seems to load and shut down quicker. I haven’t ran into any bugs at this point.
Well it is raining so I can’t go outside and play. I am settling for the next best thing. Removed all my prior repos and going to all factory. I will let it do it’s thing and see if I get to reload my system or continue on.
Sorry I don’t understand. I origially wanted to upgrade to 12.3 but I realized that I’m happy with the apps etc. As KDE 4.10 is currently RC1, I would expect it to be generally ok with same bugs which I’m happy to live with. My doubt is how to move from kde49 repo to repo for 4.10.
Typically, for a new user to a distro, I’d suggest they at least run with the basics for a few months.
To give guidance on a distro upgrade from 12.2 > 12.3 (12.3 is in development and not stable at all). Would be foolhardy.
Can I just point that out to you.
Not to mention the kde upgrade, but you’d get that in a 12.2 > 12.3 move, but it’s not what this original post was about.
Sure you can embark on whatever adventure you like and I’m happy for you to do so. It can be great fun. Just don’t do it on a machine that is vital to your well-being.
Consider this: There is a line of people longer than the last train to San Fernando that crashed and burned with what you are suggesting.
And but a squit full of happy campers.
Any way, if you want to try 12.3, why upgrade. Rather use the 12.3 Milestone release DVD and become part of the testing community.
