    Default Kernel update bug

    suse 10.3(lastest updates)

    A kernel update will keep adding a suse entry and suse failsafe entry to the grub menu. I have to manually delete the extra items each time.

    edit /etc/zypp/zypp.conf and comment out the line
    Code:
    multiversion = kernel-desktop
    or whichever kernel you are running.
    Save the file and the next time you do a kernel update it won't save any older kernels.

    I, however, always keep two good kernels on my system and delete the third oldest kernel. That way I can always boot to a good kernel if an update has problems.
    See my post #12 in this thread for more details. Is Newest Kernel Update (2.6.34.7-0.3.1) Safe?
    Good luck.
