openSUSE 13.2 is out and gets a host of new stuff. Right from new desktop environments (KDE, GNOME, MATE…its got it all), there is plenty of stuff to write about. For those running on openSUSE 13.1, upgrading is pretty simple and takes only about 20 minutes.

1.) Open Software Repositories from YaST
2.) Disable all the unnecessary repositories (keep only OSS, debug, update repositories)
3.) Change the 13.1 in the Repository URL to 13.2
4.) Open Terminal. As root, run ‘zypper refresh’
5.) Once the repositories are refreshed, run ‘zypper dup’
6.) Go through accepting some licenses. Let the magic run

This should upgrade the system from 13.1 to 13.2. Have fun 🙂
