Will 10.3 require an entirely new installation, or simply upgrade?

Who knows? As 10.3 is not out, nobody can tell for sure. However it
miost likely will be as it was with 10.2, 10.1, 10.0, 9.3, 9.2, 9.1,
9.0, 8.2, 8.1, 8.0, 7.3, 7.2, 7.1, 7.0, 6.4, 6.3, 6.2, 6.1, 6.0, 5.4,
5.3, 5.2, 5.1, 5.0 and 4.2.
That mean you best take a backup, try the upgrade and if that fails, do
the new installation. What I will be doing is do a dual boot for 10.2
and 10.3 and if 10.3 id running OK, move over to 10.3 completely. The
reason is that a lot of the times I sayd to myself If I could turn back
time ..., If I could find a way ..., I'd take back those boots that hurd
me and reinstal. (Sorry)
In a working enviroment you ALWAYS first check if the new is working as
expected and will fullfill the needs. It is easier then you think, yet
you need to have taken some precausions.
1) You need to have an available partition for /
2) You need /home on a seperate partition
Idealy things like /srv or what not should be on their own partition as
well, yet that is no must.
Just made a new page: [url]http://houghi.org/suse_upgrade[/url] that describes the
process of how I do it.
But I will accept the rules that you feel necessary to your freedom. I am
free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I
tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free
because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.
