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.

Today, openSUSE 12.3 got released after 6 months of hard work by openSUSE members and contributors.

As usual, I’m doing a zypper live upgrade, but so far it’s still downloading packages, so I can’t say anything about 12.3 just yet.

I am going to post a review of the process and the results after it is finished. In the mean time, if you’re in the area (southern Germany), why not go to the release party in Nürnberg? It starts at 7pm at artefakt.
