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) here’s the latest for upgrading in-place from 11.3 to 11.4 (somehow I missed 11.2 to 11.3…?):
zypper modifyrepo --all --disable zypper addrepo --name "openSUSE-11.4 OSS" http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.4/repo/oss/ repo-11.4-oss zypper addrepo --name "openSUSE-11.4 Non-OSS" http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.4/repo/non-oss/ repo-11.4-non-oss zypper addrepo --refresh --name "openSUSE-11.4 Updates" http://download.opensuse.org/update/11.4/ repo-11.4-update zypper ref zypper dup --download "in-advance"
Of course, if you were using alternative repos, you might want to add those back too. For instance, if you had the google-chrome repo, you’d enter this command to re-enable it:
zypper mr -e google-chrome
…you can find the rest of your disabled repos (from the first step above) with this command:
Enjoy your upgraded machine!
