I’m running OpenSuse 12.2 on a notebook - now I want to do an update to 12.3
Note: there are only a very very few third-party things on the machine - such as:
- amarok and some more
Well, if I follow the steps for upgrade that are written down here: http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:System_upgrade, I think that there are no risks in following the steps. But wait: There is a serious warning:
Warning: Use with caution. Using third-party repositories may break your system or cause instabilities.
zypper addrepo --name <name> <url> <alias>
Or, if you have URL of a .repo file:
zypper ar <url.repo>
- After upgrade, reboot is recommended to start new kernel and newer versions of everything.
zypper upcan be run from time to time to ensure you have the latest available packages from the various repositories that you have enabled. YOU (Yast Online Update) only addresses security updates from the official repositories.
Well - what do you say - should I follow the steps with the third-party things or should I leave all that stuff "as_is"? How would you go on here?
Note: if these questions are Noob-questions - bear with me. I am not so experienced.
