32-bit Vista Ultimate SP1, Fully Patched
Running VMware Workstation 5.5.7 build-91707
32-bit OpenSuSE 10.3, Fully Patched
Media for Update: openSUSE-11.0-DVD-i386.iso
(Successfully used to create new VMs)
Pointed the existing VM’s virtual CDROM to the ISO, then booted from the ISO. Ran SuSE install selecting the “Update” option.
Network card has disappeared, Yast2 does not list or recognize. Have rebooted, and during bootup, it looks like the OS is finding the virtual network interface as eth2.
Have not thought about this before, but I don’t see a GUI “hardware re-scan” utility.
As noted, this media is good and has been used to create 3 new OpenSuSE 11 VMs.
Not sure what can be tried at this point… short of looking for a command line method but even then I wonder what issues I might run into if the hardware wasn’t automatically read into YAST already.
