Just "update" through the normal SuSE oss/nonoss repos, packman, guru,
etc. You know, you open Yast and go to Software management [ go watch a
movie ] and, lets say for some reason you don't have Samba installed so
you search for "samba" and a long list appears in the right window. Some
are blue and some are black,[ and possibly red once in a while ]. The
blue ones have a newer version available so you decide to go ahead and
update them. Next thing you know your wading through about four hundred
Gnome conflicts that wants to uninstall everything from the kernel to
k3b. THEN it tells you that there is no installable source for this or
that package that it said there was an update to.
