somebody seems to have a clean way to do this, have to be documented after tests

I did it sucessfully with 11.4. I do not recommend a live upgrade (zypper dup) but an offline upgrade (dvd, boot, choose "upgrade"). I did comment about it. It is not a supported scenario, so said Kulow time ago. The subject was talked about here:

Question for devs O:-)


By the way, the offline upgrade method is not even mentioned in http://en.opensuse.org/Upgrade. I'm thinking on adding a note somewhere in there, but not sure where exactly. Suggestions?
