I don't remember the details exactly, but they were different each time. The second time, kdepim had a slew of dependencies and the recommended solution of not installing kdepim led to 24 further dependency issues so I rebooted. The third time was kd3 and flac. kd3 required flac and there was no source for installation of the required flac library.

Update. I decided to give the upgrade another try. I guess I like a good challenge. This time I tried to do a system update using yast , and added updated repositories to suse 10.3 including nvidia and 3rd party programs. Still a no go. Although I was updated to the new kernel, and even nvidia updated their were a couple of things that would not work. Firefox would not work, and yast would not work. Also yum would not work, so I had no way of downloading updates to fix dependenices. So again I restored back to 10.2.

To the other guy that is having denpendencies problems with a clean install. That doesn't make sense. If going with a default install their should be a problem. Did you do a media check? Sounds like something is missing.

update to my post # 3...

I finally installed 10.3 from a DVD and loved this new system .....
I noticed that every time I re-boot, my printer settings disappear. (HP all in one C4180).
This printer has always been perfect on 10.2, Debian, & Slack 12.
I tried a re-install and still nuthin'.
The boot loader screen also disappears sometimes so it will only boot in to whatever is set as default. (I triple boot Debian, Suse, & Slack)
Other than a few little bugs I think 10.3 is going to be much better than 10.2. It seems to be much faster and I like the new yast system.
I've removed 10.3 because of all the bugs. But will be trying it again after the updates and fixes start rolling in. I really like it but just can't deal with it till they fix it.........Gone back to 10.2 without Zenworks.

Another update. The whole time I've been working with the 64 bit versions of 10.2 and 10.3.
So I tried a 32 bit version of 10.3 for grins. Downloaded the DVD install of 10.3 32 bit.
I did a fresh install, deleting 10.2 64 bit. It worked to my surprize. It supported my Hauppauge 350 tv tuner and Logitech 4000 webcam and I just had to download and install the nvidia drivers for my GF8800, which worked good also. So apparently the 64 bit version has some issues. Out of the several versions of suse I have used, this version has been the easiest install I have had. Even though I had the 64 bit version of 10.2 running good, I did have issues with finding 64 bit dependencies, and it took more time to get something to work. I must agree with the other poster, this version of suse 10.3 is alot faster. So I'll give this 32 bit version of 10.3 a whirl for awhile. So far I'm impressed.

I did the install of 10.3 over the network for at least 12 laptops and desktops... advantage: you only load what you need, no dvd to burn, always the latest rpm's

resume: did work like a charm for different hardware. within 35 min a standard install with changing partitions on different hardware was finished...

did you guys check once (or twice*g) your memory/ram with memtest? looks like some of them have severe problems...
