Re: [opensuse-factory] Test with upgrade Leap 42.3 to 15.0 beta shows failure to start a KDE session

I copied the home and system partition of 42.3 to the two spare partitions,
each with a new label. The spare partions are newly formatted with ext4 and
both got a new unique label. I copied, using "rsync -a .."....

I'm pretty sure glibc.locale installs to hard links[1]. Other base system
packages might also, which makes 'rsync -a' inappropriate by not preserving hard
links. -H is needed.

[1] hard links cause https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=720150

FWIW, I just did a 42.1 to 15.0b successfully four days ago, but it's only using
IceWM, no Plasma.
