    Post Moving from opensuse 11 to Ubuntu

    Hi team
    I want to move from Opensuse 11.0 to the most recent Ubuntu version but I lack of the steps as I'm a kind of newbie to Linux

    Thanks,

    Re: Moving from opensuse 11 to Ubuntu

    Hey jerrys, thanks for the help. I found that guide a very good source to ground my starting with.

    However, I wanted to know if I can get rid from openSuse by installing Ubuntu directly from a bootable image. I'm assuming by doing that, Ubuntu installer would detect openSuse and would give me the choice to wipe it off.

    Can I ??

    Yes. The "bootable image" you want is the desktop CD (also known as the live CD) which you can download here:

    http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download

    Burn it to CD. Useful guide here:

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BurningIsoHowto

    Boot from the CD into the live Desktop and you'll find the graphical installer icon on the desktop. Here's the installation guide for the live CD:

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GraphicalInstall

    At the partitioning stage you can select one of the guided options. If you choose "use entire disc", the HD will be reformatted, effectively overwriting your openSUSE installation. Or you could choose "manual" and reuse (and reformat) the openSUSE partitions.

    Good luck!

    Hi again
    I'm writing to you right now from Ubuntu 9.04. That was a single-click and graceful migration.

    Many thanks for you and Ubuntu community !

    Re: Moving from opensuse 11 to Ubuntu

    hi, i moved from openSuse (came with the hp notebook) to ubuntu (meerkat) and lost the wireless connection that used to work perfectly and VLC does not play my dvd-s. on a different laptop i already used ubuntu so i thought this would be a very safe move - and here i am, hooked to the internet via an ethernet cable (not the end of the world, i know) and feeling very stupid for installing ubuntu and wiping suse off.
    i know for VLC you need the rights and stuff - but it doesnt even start playing the dvd.
    as for the wireless, it sees our network, sees all the other ones in our building, but does not connect.

    i am searching high and low these forums and the internet for any help, but no luck so far.
    any ideas please? thank you!
