Mr. Meissner -
Thank you for your email on the upgrade.
When I upgraded in place (not a fresh install) to openSuSE 15.1 as the
native OS (from 15.0), I ran into problems with a virtualbox installation,
ultimately losing the entire system and doing a complete reinstall.
Upgrades in place on two other machines without virtualbox went smoothly -
The problem may have been due to the presence of virtualbox or my use of
the btrfs file system, but perhaps some other cause - an error on my part.
Based on a post on the virtualbox forum, I learned that one fellow
successfully performed the upgrade and I've inquired about the details. I
did not find anything else relevant on either the openSuSE forums or after
a search of the web.
Are you aware of any issues I should consider? Any advice you might have
would be greatly appreciated.
