11.4 M6 Install-11.4 RC1 Install

I'm currently running 11.4 M6 on my Netbook and was wondering if I
download the Release Candidate 1 DVD image and burn it to DVD will I
need to do a clean Install of Release Candidate 1 or will I be able to
upgrade M6 to RC1.  This is the first time that I've used a pre-release
version of OpenSuse?

If you change your repos to Factory like I do, it will just roll over
to RC1
You only need these 2 repos
'Index of /factory/repo/oss'
(http://download.opensuse.org/factory/repo/oss/)
'Index of /factory/repo/non-oss'
(http://download.opensuse.org/factory/repo/non-oss/)

Disable or remove any others

Ok thanks for that info.  I'll try that, even though I've not had much
luck with online updates of OpenSuse in the past I've ended up with
broken KDE upgrades, that's why I was asking if it was possible to do an
upgrade from the RC1 DVD.

According to the openSUSE 11.4 Roadmap: 'openSUSE:Roadmap - openSUSE'
(http://en.opensuse.org/Roadmap). 

We are expecting a Feb. 10, 2011 release of openSUSE 11.4 RC1.


Cheers!

Do I have to keep 'Index of /update/11.4'
(http://download.opensuse.org/update/11.4/)  enabled or disable it?

Thanks for the info and link, I'd already seen the roadmap for release
on the 11.4 portal prior to downloading the M6 iso.

Keep it
But there is next to nothing in it. I usually disable it, but it
probably doesn't matter.

Thanks for the help everyone.  I'll give the online update a go
tomorrow, and I'll also download the RC1 DVD iso using the family
Windows 7 Notebook just in case the Online update fails.

Following  *caf4926*'s suggestion I am using these two repos only in my
RC1 install.

Index of /factory/repo/oss
Index of /factory/repo/non-oss

Last night upgrading the kernel went without a hitch.

My question is when 11-4 goes gold can I switch repos and carry on
without a reinstall.

RC1 KDE is working so nicely for me now and I am hoping that will be
the case through all the RCs as I update.  I would rather not to have to
rebuild when 11-4 is released.

Thanks!

Yes you can. But sometimes there is some wonky stuff left over from the
releases previous to the finished product. I usually do a clean install
when a release becomes final, but you can try it your way and see how it
works.

Cannot Install 4.11
Hi there I'm trying to install 4.11 onto an Compaq Deskpro EN, so I can test the migration wizard. I've fdisked the hdd, created an 800mb primary partition, made it active and sysed it. I copied the CD drivers to this partition and booted from it. When I run install from the 4.11 CD it asks what language I want to use. I select english, then it gets bitter and twisted.
