Has anyone tried using the update for installing RC1? I have 11.0 beta3
installed and want to do RC1 without total reinstall if possible. I
looked at the delta iso but I apparently deleted beta 3 iso but mistake
so i don't have it and I understand I would need it for the delta
to work. Is this correct?
I have. But on a virtual machine only. On that vm I had the normal
Packman stuff, multimedia worked fine.
I also had had Apache/MySQL/Php. Amarok configured to use MySQL The
Amarok database was dumped from my real machine.
I had PhpMyadmin, too. They all worked fine. Then I went:
#zypper dup -l
Taht's it. Everyhting worked fine :)
Executed the above commands and go the following:
zypper dup -l

linux:~ # uname -a
Linux linux 22.214.171.124-8-pae #1 SMP 2008-05-26 15:23:05 +0200 i686 i686 i386
linux:~ # cat /etc/SuSE-release
openSUSE 11.0 (i586)
VERSION = 11.0
How can I tell if I'm actually on RC1? The uname comand and cat of
SuSE-release do not say, only 11.0.
Thanks for the help. I can always install RC one from the DVD I made.
Rc1 is not a release. All the way from alphas via betas to rc is a
continuous chain of changes.
They are all 11.0, just not released and under development, snapshots of
factory at given times.
If you keep going with zypper dup you'll end up with the release.
Then you need to change the repos to point to 11.0, otherwise you'll have
11.1 factory again :)
I had saved a snapshot of the original installation of beta3 which I
updated. So I got hundreds of packages (over 800 I think).
You obviously updated a system which already had almost everything updated
from the factory repos?
I had waited for the RC1 and the frozen factory repos to do the update.
# zypper ref
# zypper dup -l
The reason I ask is that operating systems today have to pass the
grandpa test if they are to gain traction against the competition.
I am an old command line GUI guy but I don't think command line options
need to be used as examples unless the limitations of the GUI
