Hello :wink:

What file system (FS) will i have if i zypper dup from openSUSE 13.1 to 13.2 ?

thanks :wink:

Since you’re not using an installer, your partitioning will be unchanged.

So what does the dup process does exactly ? Does it only updates the packages found in my config to the versions of the 13.2 urls ? (oss, non oss, update)
I thought it could have changed my FS to Btrfs too.

edit : By partitioning : do you mean the size of partition like root(/) etc … ( as i saw root (/) should be increased due to Btrfs) , or that nothing in partitioning will be changed (same size and FS) ?

Yes, it will not change partition sizes or file systems. It is only upgrading packages in a strategic way.

Cool, thank you :wink:

i’m now using openSUSE 13.2, after a zypper dup from 13.1, thus i’m still using ext4.

Is snapper still usefull ? (man says that snapper is able to use ext4 but i have increased my root partition size).
Will it create snapshots automatically ?
How do i turn off snapper properly ?

Thanks :wink:

AFAIK snapper for ext4 is not yet available in stable form. I’m sure you can find an alpha to try.

Personally I see little use for most desktop users. Developer yes maybe commercial operations maybe. Maybe if the frequency of snaps was turned down a great deal and number saved. I believe the default is 1 per hour and 100 saves. Way to high for a Desktop user. Once a day and 10 images is way plenty for most peoples usage. Also droping back to a previous state is not as simple as you might condider since there are depndencies that a general user would not be aware. You can’t in general just turn back one system file. There may be configs or other system files that would not take kindly to a rollback of say just the gcc libraries.
