Como atualizar seu OpenSuse 11.4 para 12.1 sem problemas.


Bom pessoal, antemão queremos ressaltar que o procedimento é rápido (só depende do seu link de internet) e simples de proceder. Bora simbora?

Vamos analisar os repositórios ativos (no meu caso tinham MUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUITOS, abaixo seguem somente os default), para isso use o comando:

zypper repos –uri

A resposta deverá ser:

# | Alias                            | Name                             | Enabled | Refresh | URI
1 | Updates-for-openSUSE-11.4-11.4-0 | Updates for openSUSE 11.4 11.4-0 | Yes     | Yes     |
2 | openSUSE-11.4-11.4-0             | openSUSE-11.4-11.4-0             | Yes     | No      | cd:///?devices=/dev/disk/by-id/ata-VMware_Virtual_IDE_CDROM_Drive_10000000000000000001,/dev/sr0
3 | repo-debug                       | openSUSE-11.4-Debug              | No      | Yes     |
4 | repo-debug-update                | openSUSE-11.4-Update-Debug       | No      | Yes     |
5 | repo-non-oss                     | openSUSE-11.4-Non-Oss            | Yes     | Yes     |
6 | repo-oss                         | openSUSE-11.4-Oss                | Yes     | Yes     |
7 | repo-source                      | openSUSE-11.4-Source             | No      | Yes     |

Vamos ativar o repositório updates for opensuse 11.4 11.4-0 com o seguinte comando:

zypper modifyrepo –enable Updates-for-openSUSE-11.4-11.4-0

Logo em seguida, validar o repositório (URI):

zypper addrepo –check –name ‘openSUSE-11.4-Update’ repo-update

Hora de deixar tudo novinho antes da upgrade:

zypper refresh

zypper update


Depois que tudo estiver atualizado na atual versão deveremos fazer o seguinte:

zypper modifyrepo –all –disable

Isso vai desativar tudo quanto for repositório antigo (11.4).

Hora de ativar todos os repositórios novos:

zypper addrepo –name “openSUSE-12.1 OSS” repo-12.1-oss
zypper addrepo –name “openSUSE-12.1 Non-OSS” repo-12.1-non-oss
zypper addrepo –name “openSUSE-12.1 Updates” repo-12.1-update


zypper ref

zypper dup


Depois disto dê reboot (no console mesmo):



Quando inicializar já virá com gnome-shell.
Aqui está ok (brilho, som), mas a wifi foi para o espaço.
Iremos fazer um artigo com a correção.
