Following along in my line of “Readers Digest” versions of the official Opensuse upgrades procedures (here are a couple of my past ones: 11.1, 11.2, 11.4, 12.1, 12.2, 12.3, 13.1), here’s the latest for upgrading in-place from 13.1 to 13.2 (just be sure to run each of these lines one-at-a-time, not like a script):
## Check your repos. Look for anything custom, and note it for later if so... zypper lr # If you can, do a final update (if the repos still exist)... zypper up # Disable all the old repos... zypper modifyrepo --all --disable # Now set up the new repos for 13.2... zypper addrepo --name "openSUSE-13.2-OSS" http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/13.2/repo/oss/ repo-13.2-oss zypper addrepo --name "openSUSE-13.2-Non-OSS" http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/13.2/repo/non-oss/ repo-13.2-non-oss zypper addrepo --check --refresh --name "openSUSE-13.2-Updates" http://download.opensuse.org/update/13.2/ repo-13.2-updates zypper addrepo --check --refresh --name "openSUSE-13.2-Updates-Non-Oss" http://download.opensuse.org/update/13.2-non-oss/ repo-13.2-updates-non-oss # Now do a refresh to update the local cache... zypper ref # Do a Distribution UPgrade... and I like the option to download all the packages first, before installation... zypper dup --download "in-advance" # Now, make a list of the old disabled repos; they might be a combination of 12.3 and 12.2 on some systems, if they weren't cleaned before... Whoops... ;) zypper lr # Remove all the old repos, for example... zypper rr repo-12.2-non-oss repo-12.2-oss repo-12.2-update repo-12.3-non-oss repo-12.3-oss repo-12.3-updates repo-12.3-updates-non-oss repo-update-non-oss repo-13.1-non-oss repo-13.1-oss repo-13.1-updates repo-13.1-updates-non-oss repo-update-non-oss # One more check to be sure that only 13.2 repos remain... zypper lr # And reboot... init 6
My advice is to make sure you have multiple terminal sessions during the upgrade, in case something goes a little strange, and make sure you have space for the kernel and all the files.
Thanks to the folks at Suse, and here’s the “long and detailed” guide that I adapted this from:
