In one of my rare spare moments, i thought of upgrading a couple of 11.0
systems towards 11.1 (just before 11.2 hits the road)

afaicr, it should have been:
- update the system, (boot afterwards, certainly after kernel patch)
- remove all 11.0 repositories
- include all equivalent 11.1 repositories
- do a zypper ref
- do a zypper dup (all went fine)

[insert new step here]

- reboot

However, it resulted in atleast two unbootable systems (dom-U)
Which step did i forgot?

New step:
find / -type f \( -name '*.rpmold' -o -name '*.rpmnew' ) -ls
and double-check the contents of any similarly named configuration file.
