    Question Mirrors for 11.3 repositories?


    Hi there,

    I can see that some of the 11.3 repos are already gone. (E.g., Contrib)

    When I used Ubuntu, there were servers where the repositories for older versions were still available (although seemingly somewhat slower, but who cared).

    Aren't there similar "archive" mirrors for OpenSuSE?

    (Actually at my workplace we still use 11.3, and I wouldn't like to upgrade until they do, so that we can synchronize about problems -- like installing software for remote access, etc.)

    a few weeks ago the support (including security fixes) for 11.3 ran out
    as usual the opensuse is supported for 18 months, then we upgrade
    = time to upgrade, its free anyway
    to run an old version without security fixes is zero fun

    as published in details may make your upgrade easy, just backup all data and read instructions in detail, specially regarding systemd instructions-.
