Updating suse 9 2 vince vaughn wedding crashers dating
If I remember correctly, the term "professional" meant the paid DVD vs the downloaded install. It was the traditional, DVD boot and upgrade method, that is also available now in open SUSE. The problem for him will be to obtain a 10.x DVD, because they were not freely available.
(from 11.2 x86_64 "Emerald" at Telcontar) I have done many upgrades with that open SUSE professional. at least 10.2 has still the iso files if that helps.
cites: System_upgrade and you say you want to save your installed software, what do you mean..you wanna save your old Apache or pine and use with a new 11.4 base system? ) of your current install, sufficiently to restore the system at any point.
are we talking a desktop system on a laptop or an enterprise server in a rack... hmmmmm, there is (somewhere) the way to do it, but i can't find it now... It would also be wise to test all of the intermediate steps as fresh installs on a spare partition (or disk!
You likely need to backup all your 'data' and all of your 'configuration files' [typically inside /etc] and your /home and then do a fresh install and re-install EVERY THING.
The information in the /etc files can be especially useful if you run into difficulty configuration some applications.

Su SE Linux Professional is what later became open SUSE. - It is a lot of work: you have to do now what you did not do in years. You can upgrade to a version 10.x something, by first grabbing the DVD from somewhere.
(from 11.2 x86_64 "Emerald" at Telcontar) Su SE Linux Professional is what later became open SUSE.
(from 11.2 x86_64 "Emerald" at Telcontar) I looked that up for another user in the forum, it seems one can still download the iso's from here.
There may also be 'configuration' information in /home/yourusername/. If it were me, I would create a separate partition for open SUSE-11.4 (including separate / and /home partitions) and dual boot between Su SE-9.2 Pro and open SUSE-11.4 and gradually migrate over from 9.2 to 11.4.
well, i'm sorry to say that there is no _supported_ upgrade path unless it would be to step from 9.2 to 9.3 to 10.0 to 10.1 etc etc etc..
the easiest way to get a stable open SUSE system would be to save your data to an off machine location and do a format install of 11.4--careful, if yours is a desktop-less, or headless server you are gonna be (probably) disapointed to learn that open SUSE 11.4 is *not* your daddy's Su SE 9.2 the default install of 11.4 with will be a full-up desktop machine with either KDE, Gnome, LXDE or other GUI....a server install is possible, of course, but you have select that during install...see: 5, to have a full up server you must select "Other" and then . and, you might note that the service life of open SUSE is far shorter (see: than that of the enterprise version SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (see: (from 11.2 x86_64 "Emerald" at Telcontar) :-P But it has to be explained, there are limitations: - It can not be done in one big step.
come to think of it, there _may_ be a smooth easy upgrade path from SUSE Linux 9.2 Professional to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server version 11, check it out at novell.com/linux and in their fora at forums.let us know what your needs are if you intend to use open SUSE.. If I remember correctly, the term "professional" meant the paid DVD vs the downloaded install. - It can not be done "live": that is certainly not supported. - The support is "past tense" for some of the steps.
