In doing so, the "upgrade" DELETED *all* of my existing

Is this what is really supposed to happen?


Is this the correct way to move from RC1 to RC2? When I installed RC1
on my laptop it set up repositories such as
... etc.

No mention of RC1 or RC2 in those paths.

I assumed that given the above repositories, zypper up would move my
installation seamlessly through RC1 -> RC2 -> GM

Have I missed something?

Don't know.....

I had RC1 installed and I, too, had the above repos plus several others which I installed manually (eg, packman, videolan,....). I also "moved" effortlessly from RC1 up to RC2 on a daily basis using zypper.

But then today I decided to make sure that I in fact had RC2 and decided to use the iso and envoke not the Installation option but the (?)Upgrade Existing system. Doing so resulted in what I described in my first post: ALL of my repos were deleted leaving me with only the DVD and ~580MB of files were downloaded.
