Seeing that there are only two more weeks until openSUSE 12.2 reaches end of life, I’m doing my usual upgrade with zypper.
If you are about to say “didn’t you do that already some months ago“, that was a virtual machine…now it’s my “production” system. Let’s hope all goes as well as it did on the VM.
So far all is looking good, but 4500 packages takes some time, so I can’t really say anything yet. I’m doing 12.2 -> 12.3 and KDE 4.11 -> KDE 4.12 at the same time, so it might get a bit hairy at some point.
The fun part comes next week… if this goes well I’ll do the same to my wife’s laptop, where a failure will be way more painful…
Update: finished, all seems to be working fine.
