I have an old 32-bit laptop with only 512mb RAM which has been running openSUSE since I bought it many years ago. I am not planning to upgrade any of its hardware as it is doing the task it is used for just fine. Today it is with version 13.2 which as I read is reaching the end of its life in a few days:
I wonder what my options are:
1. Upgrade to Tumbleweed?
As I mentioned in this thread it seemed impossible to install directly Tumbleweed which is strange because this same computer used to run an earlier version of Tumbleweed without problems. But as reported in the thread it seems a direct install may not be possible any more (perhaps the installer suddenly needs more ram). So I am thinking - is it possible to do a system upgrade to Tumblweed instead of installing from scratch in order to avoid the potential issues mentioned in the other thread? If yes - can you recommend how to do it?
2. Stay with 13.2 and never be able to update software
That would be quite an unfortunate option although perhaps the one requiring least work.
3. Change distro?
I would really prefer to stay with openSUSE as I am very used to it.
4. Anything else?
