On Ubuntu, after you have logged in, it asks you if
you want to upgrade. You click yes or no. There is nothing to configure
or isos to burn. We have nothing like that.

We do have something effectively equivalent that is modestly more
complicated:

1-login on a vtty as root (vtty recommended but not required)
2-# zypper clean -a
3-navigate to /etc/zypp/repos.d/
4-edit each file there, replacing each instance of 13.1 with 13.2
5-# zypper ref
6-# zypper dup
7-reboot into 13.2


Nah, c'mon, please. Modestly? I've got 80 clients. Surely someone can
give us a yes/no box to click after a new version is released can't they?


I can put those commands in a shell script and start it from remote. Or
per cron job. I'd use "zypper -n" then, because I don't want questions.
Or I do it on a test box and clone the installation to my clients, ig
their software is homogenuous enough.

It might be not so much slower than 80 clicks on an OK button. Oh, and
pssh is my friend :)
