i have m4 installed on my pc and want to update to m6 using yast or zypper (not downloading isos)is it possible?
Please open a terminal window and do:
and post output here.
This way we can see which repos you have enabled. Normally the factory repos are enabled after a Milestone install. That would mean that all you’d have to do is:
su -c ‘zypper ref’
su -c ‘zypper up’
Both commands will ask you for the root password.
You could also start Yast - Software - Software Management, Menu Packages, All Packages, Update if a newer version is available.
BTW: funny how avatars find eachother again and again.
The Factory repos don’t contain milestone 6, only the factory snapshot repos do. And “zypper dup” is the right command.
cool but i have done zypper dup befora it removed my kernel and then failed
If you do an update, Check the
boot loader to check M6 is there.
Otherwise it may not start.
