Re: [SLE] upgrade from 7.2 to 7.3 never works?

I upgraded from 7.2 personal to 7.3 pro and the upgrade worked
fine. However...there are some advantages to backing up your
data and doing a clean install, which I eventually did. One big
thing is that if you have an IDE CD-RW, 7.3 will automatically
set it up using the ide-scsi module so it is ready to burn. If
you upgrade, it will leave it as an IDE device and you will have
to set it up manually. So even though it works, I would
recommend doing the clean install.

The difference between Linux and Microsoft is the difference
