Steps to upgrade Linux SUSE 11 from SP1 to SP2.

The original steps are listed at novell site:
http://www.novell.com/support/kb/doc.php?id=7010200

Here are the steps I executed in order to upgrade Linux SUSE11 from SP1 to SP2:

1. Installed the following packages:

SUSE_SLES-SP2-migration
sle-sdk-SP2-migration:



2. Started "wagon" (linux update tool)
3. Followed wagon's instructions.
 - registered the system
 - enabled both SP1 and SP2 repositories (this is critical, otherwise there were some dependcies shown which could not be resolved)
 - accepted all defaults and exected the migration process
4. Rebooted the machine
5. Ran wagon again
6. After going through the steps it showed that the system upgrade was successful
