OpenSuSE 11.1 PPC Part II

OpenSuSE 11.1 PPC Part II

Not much to tell, I haven't tested it (the memory) and have no intention
to do so 'cos it works thus far and that's all that matters to me.

Really all I did was to add the 11.1DVD to a *** 10.3 install as an
update repository. After adding kernel, KDE and proprietery ATI drivers
as the update package and resolving the few dozen dependencies that
cropped up (which mainly consisted of "<i>gnore this conflict and carry
on"), YaST updated the install to 11.1 and after that, allowed me to
autoupdate everything else via YUM. Have fun! Warning, when you get a
stack of XML files downloading it'll take an hour or so on a fast link;
you know the kernel update's worked and it's updated the version key as
well, it'll be downloading the latest patches for 11.1 rather than for
10.3 which seems to be AWOL. Though, for some reason it requires the
10.3 disc to clear the update cache the first time round... hohum.
