Answer: Do whatever you like; it's your machine. If you want to, go ahead. If this is to (finally), replace the badly botched installation you did have, it was recommended to you some time ago to do a fresh installation. If this is what it takes to accomplish it, then by all means, proceed.

You've said things like this MANY times...where you were 'convinced' to repair things or write your own code, only to come back and post more questions that indicate you did NOT actually do anything. Please, don't lie.

I tend to do full clean installs for major updates. This version may offer supported upgrade. As always, backup and test backup before you start.

normally suse minor upgrades are no problem
that said , 13.2 is a bit different

it might upgrade well - OR not ????

be careful
try the upgrade but PLAN FOR !!!! a new install
Code:
su -
zypper dup
should do it
B U T !!!!


i would wait a week and read the suse forum to see what people are having issues with
http://forums.opensuse.org/forum.php
BUT
it is your machine

your choice

or play it safe
burn the 13.2 dvd
and use the install dvd to " upgrade an existing install"

Again, as you've been told MANY TIMES SO FAR, how you partition your drive is entirely your choice. You were given this advice here, and in other threads you've posted. It's NEVER CHANGED. And since you've already DONE THIS (right???), what does it matter what anyone thinks, since you've already done it, and are using it????

We'll suggest (as we have in other threads you've posted), that you provide the relevant details. Either you need to use network manager or the ifup/ifconfig commands...not both. This hasn't changed in years. Second, you don't bother telling us ANYTHING about your hardware, your WIFI NIC, if you're using static or DHCP, what you've done/tried so far, anything you've found out by doing the diagnostics you should have already done. Things like looking at the output of "ifconfig -a", running dmesg, looking in system logs, and posting the RELEVANT lines from dmesg and the system logs here.

Either choose to have the network managed by network manager or not in YAST. From there, have you tried just clicking the network manager applet in your system tray, and configuring your network?
