I'm upgrading 11.4 to 12.1. What's annoying in zypper dup is that after about a minute it goes background. Output to console is still active, but I lose the ability to do stdin. A message appears saying

[1]+ Stopped zypper dup

or something like that. I can't do anything when zypper prompts me something. I tried doing fg but I get

zypper dup

[1]+  Stopped                 zypper dup

[1]+  Stopped                 zypper dup

How can I restore stdin to zypper or at least tell it to go ahead with retry command?

Do you have cpulimit installed? – grawity Jan 26 '12 at 22:57
No, because I didn't intentionally install it and zypper se cpulimit says the package is not found – usr-local-ΕΨΗΕΛΩΝ Jan 27 '12 at 18:05
By the way, I'm on a VPS box. Could the company have installed it into the kernel or something like that? I didn't know cpulimit since now – usr-local-ΕΨΗΕΛΩΝ Jan 27 '12 at 18:10
Eh, I'm not sure about it. I was just asking because of similar symptoms. – grawity Jan 27 '12 at 18:54
