How to in-place upgrade from Opensuse 11.3 to 11.4

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" repo-11.4-oss
zypper addrepo --name "openSUSE-11.4 Non-OSS" repo-11.4-non-oss
zypper addrepo --refresh --name "openSUSE-11.4 Updates" 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.Ā  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:

zypper sl

Enjoy your upgraded machine!
