0pensuse 10.3


I am currently running 0pensuse 10.2, but have just purchased build 10.3 for installation later this week. Can I just install over the top of 10.2? Also, other than backing up my data, is there anything else I should do?
All advice appreciated.

You should be able to just choose the "upgrade" option with install. If you end up with too much buggy stuff, do a clean install.

BTW, you get SUSE specific answers faster in the group ->Distributions->SUSE

If you decide to do a clean install for some reasons, you can keep all your data under a partition (usually /home) and DO NOT flag that partition for formatting. Anyway, better to do a safe backup. ALWAYS!
