    Upgrading From 12.3 to 13.1 Assist

    Hi,

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

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

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

    Code:
    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>
    Code:
    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. :-)

    Code:
    linux-tso4:/etc # cat os-release
    NAME=openSUSE
    VERSION="13.1 (Bottle)"
    VERSION_ID="13.1"
    PRETTY_NAME="openSUSE 13.1 (Bottle) (x86_64)"
    ID=opensuse
    ANSI_COLOR="0;32"

    You can manually change the boot splash label from 12.3->13.1 in YaST->Boot Loader Settings: https://www.suse.com/documentation/s...t2_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.
