Leap 15.5 Support

Hi Team,

I see that openSUSE has releases Leap 15.5 and I was wondering if this is supported at the moment or will it be in the future. I am also willing to test this version if this will help the community?

I found this upgrade walk through - How to Upgrade to openSUSE Leap 15.5 from Leap 15.4 (linuxiac.com)

The only thing that is missing is one repo ‘repo-update’ not going to make changes unless its supported though :wink:



@agjbond007 Hello again.

Leap 15.5 doesn’t carry a Python 2.7 but Tumbleweed does, so although we do have rpms and a testing repo for 15.5 they are build on some what of a hybrid between 15.4 and 15.5 - more as a place holder really. But our current GitHub testing branch is now Py3.6 based (like all our Leaps have by default) and we just have to do the finishing touches to the following Milestone:

and we shall begin a new testing channel phase. That should include a native Leap 15.5 rpm (build without the host being half 15.4 and half 15.5).

We have more of a delay than anticipated as Shopfiy (our legacy shop still used for activation code ‘orders’) gave us just 3 weeks notice on a major API change - so we are pushing on instead with our Open Collective API intergration and so have had an inevitable delay in pushign our new Stable of 4.6.0-0 out and finalising the Py3.6 milestone to start releasing new testing rpms also.

So briefly - yes we should be doing native 15.5 rpms soon. But for now I’d stick to 15.4 just in case.
Plus I’d like to do the counterpart to our:
with the new native 15.5 Py3.6 rockstor rpm in place before recommending 15.5 or any in-place update.

Hope that helps.


@phillxnet hello,

As always a very detailed and informative response and thank you for do that. This has helped me understand the situation and I will be glad to help test out the build or assist with the documentation.
