SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 documentation covers information on how to install the operating system in a virtual machine.
For additional information about the operating system, refer to the instructions included in the installation media.
Updating installed software (also often called "packages") for SUSE is made about as simple as Linux can make it through Ya ST.
The section of Ya ST that handles online updates is called "YOU". You are presented with some options, under "Installation Source", select a mirror that is geographically close to you.
It is especially useful for accomplishing remote software management tasks and this package is available by default in the SUSE Linux operation system.
Sometimes, when you want to perform some updates, you might not be able to do the task using a DVD due to display issues or the Ya ST utility not work properly. Perform the following tasks to upgrade from SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 11 SP0 to SLES 11 SP03.
They are described in the section about Invoking the Auto-Installation Process in the Auto Ya ST documentation or/and in the parameter description of Linuxrc.
Follow these instructions and install a new system using the Auto Ya ST profile.
Finally, you can configure automatic updates; if you have broadband and leave your box on all the time you can use it if you want to; I like to do it manually.
Once you're happy with your selections, click "Next".
