Took the plunge and migrated my production maching from Tumbleweed to
Factory. Mind I have quite a few extra "Tumbleweed build" repos enabled.
I made a copy of /etc/zypp/repos.d and edited all active to reflect the
correct locations for openSUSE-Factory, including renaming for identity
purposes. I backed up the current /etc/zypp and replaced repos.d with the
Major conflict/resolution list primarly between perl 5.20 and yast
packages. Found easiest solution to singularly install perl 5.20 and
allow a few package downgrades. Only took two steps and entire system
appears as one would expect,ie: no conflicts
New kernel 3.16 boots fine.
Major Problems With Graphical Display:
I have nVidia 450 GTS
Had NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-331.49-custom.run active but was unable to get
it to work with kernel 3.16. Dl'd NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-340.24.run and it
installed fine, but...
Now the graphic display was sunk in ~1 inch on all four sides and
Have now recovered the Graphical Display, found the /etc/X11/xorg.conf
file was not good for the system for some unknown reason. It had been
fine for 13.1/Tumbleweed and Tumbleweed previous from the beginning of
Tumbleweed. I generated a new xorg.conf with nvidia-xconfig. But I do
not know why this was necessary.
I found the zypper locks have changed and I cannot figure how to lock
multiple repos for a particular package so I made individual locks. The
old locks were not correct for openSUSE-Factory.
The Graphical Display really had me stumped and I really only recovered
due to educated guesses.
Life goes on.
tks, questions welcome.
