http://forums.opensuse.org – Hi, 11.3 is the first version that allowed me to upgrade install. I did so. I really expected that all the packages that I had painstakingly selected and installed to get re-installed upon an upgrade. Nope. I had to remember that gperf-dev and guile-dev had to be hand selected because the tools that fall over in their absence do not say, "you have to install gperf", for example. They just "exit 1" and say nothing. So, I think it'd be Really Cool if the installer would do a: rpm --query --all and endeavor to re-install e (Distributions)
