[solved] messed up the suse during zypper-dub - how to continue!?
 
hello and good evening


after a unsuccessful zypper-dub i think i have messed up the current system - a opensuse version 12.2
i wanted to upgrade to the new version - to version 13.1

Note: the upgrade process was not successful:

i have had issues with starting the system again - guessing that there was tooo less space for KDE

well - have a look at the system

BTW - have a look at the rootfs - guessing that there is very very little space left - isnt it!?`

BTW - i have mace a backup of all the data!
All the data is allready stored on a external drive.

what about the data - and the system. I am very very glad that i can access the system again - for more than 20 hours i had issues with KDE - guessing that there was too little space.


questions: What would you do now!? How would you continue?
Well - what do you advice to get a secure and clever updating to opensuse 13.1?

Do you have an advice and an idea!?

look forward to hear from you

suicidaleggroll 12-27-2013 02:55 PM

Wipe the drive and install 13.1 from scratch. The upgrade process is sketchy enough going between subversions (eg: 12.1 to 12.2), I'd give maybe a 2% chance of a full version update (12.2 to 13.1) succeeding properly. Yours failed, as expected, so now you need to do what you should have done from the beginning...wipe and install.

We have given you advice MANY times so far on this very subject.
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ne-4175488860/
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ne-4175488964/
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...in-4175488987/
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...se-4175489155/

It was very, VERY clear, and that was exactly what suicidaleggroll said again here. DO A FRESH INSTALL.

The upgrade the way you attempted it was not a good idea from the start, and you were told that. You ignored that advice, and did what you wanted to, so don't be surprised when your system isn't working. AGAIN...do a fresh install, restore your user data. Can't be more plain than that.

hello dear TBone and suicidalgrooll

AGAIN - many many thanks for the hints and advices.

i did a fresh install: see what i did!

again - i did a cleanup - regarding the partition. But i am new to Linux - so it is possible that i have to do a better cleanup.


above all - many many thanks for the hints - that you helped me with your advice to do a fresh install

- i will mark this thread as solved! thx.

AGAIN, you DID NOT do a fresh install, based on your other threads, and the fact that you said in the start of this thread, that you DID NOT...you said:

...nothing about that indicates that you formatted your hard drive and installed from scratch.

No idea what you mean by 'did a cleanup'....either you formatted/repartitioned the disk, or you didn't. There are MANY partitions listed that aren't in a default setup/suggestion by the openSUSE installer.

Again: do a TOTALLY FRESH install, and restore your data from backup.
