  2. Tumbleweed, kernels and UEFI

    I am running opensuse Tumbleweed on my UEFI box. Yesterday, there was a kernel update. After the update, the box had several kernels:
    • 3.7.10-1.1-1 ## from installing 12.3
    • 3.8.8-3.1 ## from a Tumbleweed update
    • 3.8.9-5.1 ## also a TW update
    • 3.9.0-6.1 ## from the latest TW update
