OpenSUSE 12.3 Is Out 62

houghi writes "OpenSUSE 12.3 is out. There are several methods of downloading, as well as different media. It is also possible to boot the live CD from a USB stick. When using the DVD or Net install ISO, the standard is to select between KDE or GNOME, but XFCE and LXDE are also options. ARM images are available as well. More information about the release can be found in this feature guide."

    Gnome? Thought de Icdaza is gone. Suse is a KDE distribution. KDE 4.10 is fantastic. Back to the good old times.

    It's actually quite easy. The poster is just making the assumption the user is using third party repositories etc, which really isn't all that necessary save for packman.

    My version would sound like
    1. open Yast, go "software", "software repositories"
    2. disable any thirdparty repos you might have. If you don't know what that is, you don't need to.
    3.change all occurrences of 12.2 to 12.3 in all listed urls. Use the edit button to achieve this.
    4. When done, click on the OK button and proceed, then close Yast.
    5. open terminal
    6. become root
    7. zypper ref -> answer all questions with "yes"
    8. zypper dup
    9. Get a cup of coffee.

    If you don't know how to become root, you have no business performing this procedure, just like you'd have no business upgrading your windows installation.
