openSUSE alpha2 update


Hi,
I have openSUSE alpha 2 installed on my computer, but i want to update it to alpha 3. I know that it's not necessary to download the ISOs again, there is a way to update it through Internet connection. Could you point me the repository addresses of openSUSE alpha3. I find a lot of mirrors but there's only the torrent files or the ISOs.
Or maybe the right question is how to migrate from alpha2 to alpha3 without CD installation?
Thanks!

You can use YAST. Make sure you have setup the "factory" repo as your main package source.

ok, thanks reddazz, I am sure that will work for me, but that's the factory distro, I'am talking about an alpha 3 installation from alpha 2(or any other suse) without downloading the 5 ISOs again. Is there any way of doing so?

The source for upgrading from one development release to another is the factory repo. Checkout the opensuse website and you will find that the link for the online source for 10.2 alpha 3 points to the factory repo. There is nothing but iso files in the 10.2 alpha 3 directory on the Suse ftp servers.

Oh, I have to learn more about the installation structure of openSuSE development releases. Sorry, my mistake!
Thank you again!
