Trying to update SuSE Linux 6.0 to a newer version, I post YAST to one
of SuSE's mirror sites and tell it to upgrade to 6.1 (I should, of
course, upgrade to 6.2, but in attempting to do so YAST tells me that my
version of YAST is too old). This yields the following error messages:
Updating your system requires actualisation of the base system.
Please boot your system as for installation and go on with updating.
When I thus boot the installation off a boot disk, I get the
installation program, but no option to "update" -- only a full install.
So I'm left pondering.
I'd imagine I could build a boot disk with YAST and the necessary driver
modules, but I do not possess the necessary Linux know-how yet. ;-)
Thanks in advance.
