Hi,

I'm attempting to upgrade from 12.3 to 13.1 via the method on this website>

https://www.unixmen.com/upgrade-opensuse-12-3-opensuse-13-1/

I went upto the part where I change the repositories from 12.3 to 13.1 via this command>


sed -i 's/12\.3/13\.1/g' /etc/zypp/repos.d/*

I then listed my repos via the zypper lr command and I'm missing this line that he shows in his output>
1 | openSUSE-13.1-1.7 | openSUSE-13.1-1.7 | Yes | No

Mine shows this>

linux-tso4:~/bkup/repos/repos.d.bak # zypper lr
# | Alias | Name | Enabled | Refresh
--+---------------------------+------------------------------------+---------+--------
1 | repo-debug | openSUSE-13.1-Debug | No | Yes
2 | repo-debug-update | openSUSE-13.1-Update-Debug | No | Yes
3 | repo-debug-update-non-oss | openSUSE-13.1-Update-Debug-Non-Oss | No | Yes
4 | repo-non-oss | openSUSE-13.1-Non-Oss | Yes | Yes
5 | repo-oss | openSUSE-13.1-Oss | Yes | Yes
6 | repo-source | openSUSE-13.1-Source | No | Yes
7 | repo-update | openSUSE-13.1-Update | Yes | Yes
8 | repo-update-non-oss | openSUSE-13.1-Update-Non-Oss | Yes | Yes

So, I didn't want to attempt to proceed with the upgrade since it's not listing the above repo. Is this going to cause issues if I try to upgrade? How can I add that to mine?

I'd rather not jack up my SUSE Dual boot load but 12.3 is dated and it appears to be lacking updates now. I did backup my 12.3 repos prior to updating to 13.1 repos so hopefully I can revert if necessary.
Thanks for any help!

Oops! Sorry, I thought i clicked on Desktop forums not Enterprise. Thanks. I went ahead and continued with the install and it went good. I'm now up on 13.1 even though the boot splash screen still shows 12.3. :-)

You can manually change the boot splash label from 12.3->13.1 in YaST->Boot Loader Settings: https://www.suse.com/documentation/sled11/book_sle_admin/data/sec_boot_yast2_config.html

Appreciated that info but I don't think I'll bother messing with this since I haven't found the old 12.3 splash to cause any issues. I'm up on the newer Linux kernel and now supported again which is what was important for me. 12.3 went EOL.
