Updating suse 9 2
If you were using third-party repositories you might get asked to perform a vendor switch.I suggest you to perform the vendor switch, just in case the third-party repositories don’t have a version of the packages for Open SUSE Leap 42.2 .Open SUSE Leap is a new operating system from SUSE based on SLES. The following procedure is not official and is not correlated with Open SUSE Documentation, I wrote it because I found the official one inadequate to common scenarios such as having Packman or third-party repositories installed.It was initially released on the 4th November 2015 with version number 42.1 . This guide also points out difficult situations which I have experienced and the relative fix I have applied.
I personally used a single command (although that’s pretty dangerous, and it doesn’t check if everything is right): This will start the upgrading process.If the update does not boot, the old root filesystem can be booted from the grub2 menu and made as new default again, means a rollback to the old state.Zypper is command line interface in Su SE Linux which is used to install, update, remove software, manage repositories, perform various queries, and lot more. Be sure to have backups of configuration files and data before starting.That said, the following procedure describes a network installation and does not use an external media.
