Why doesn’t my Vicibox9 ISO install work?

Well, it seems there is an issue with the installer now since Leap 15.1 went end of life and no longer supports updates. So what do you do now? A scratch install on Leap 15.2 is one option following a post I wrote up for that a few days ago, or you could upgrade 15.1 to 15.2 following this tutorial.

Vicibox 9 Fix as well

Step 1 – Preparing for upgrade by enabling the proper repository

zypper modifyrepo --enable openSUSE-Leap-15.1-Update
zypper ref
zypper up

Step 2 – Change existing repo’s for the others

This next part will change the repo’s to 15.2 and then we will start the fun part.

files="$(zypper lr -u | awk -F'|' '$4 ~ /Yes/ { gsub (" ", "", $2); r="/etc/zypp/repos.d/"$2".repo"; print r }')"
for f in $files
  echo "Backup of $f saved to /root/ before patching it up ..."
  cp -f "$f" /root/
  sed -i 's+/leap/15.1+/leap/$releasever+' "$f"
  sed -i 's+15.1.1+15.2+' "$f"
  sed -i 's+15.1+15.2+' "$f"

Step 3 – Update and reboot

zypper --releasever=15.2 ref
zypper --releasever=15.2 dup

March 28th Update: Make sure you copy php7.conf to mod_php7.conf or the dynportal and audiostore conf files will cause apache to have errors. You can do so with the following command:

cp /etc/apache2/conf.d/mod_php7.conf /etc/apache2/conf.d/php7.conf or vica versa, i forget
