I have just installed this:
Which do I have?

factory or RC2?

There was a 12.2RC2.5 announcement a few days ago, but I didn't save its

If I run
zypper update
it says
Nothing to be done.
even after a clean install from the DVD.

Does it pull the stuff from 'net during install? t never has done before.

I don't know. My release-next installs are usually HTTP and get whatever they get without me noticing.

Yast repos say:

Surely there have been some updates since RC2 was released.

/update/next is for testing that the updates process works prior to release. Most updates go in the snapshot repos prior to RC, and directly into the invisible release-next repo once the first RC is out. Check /etc/zypp/repos.d/ to see if the main 12.2 repos were configured by the DVD install. If not, add them, and delete the DVD repo if it's still there.
