Thread: Where is kernel-default package in 11.4??!! I.E. The Standard Kernel!!

    Default Where is kernel-default package in 11.4??!! I.E. The Standard Kernel!!

    Don't tell me it was removed?

    Everybody does not run this as a desktop on every installation and does *not* want a kernel "optimized for the desktop". Myself included. Not happy.

    Nope it's in the same place as always in the OSS repo. Just install the kernel-default package and get rid of kernel-desktop.

    I wanted to go the opposite way. I have been using the kernel-default and on the new installs I wanted to switch to Desktop. During install, I could find no way to do it. I have seen threads that show how to switch after install, but it would be easier to do during a clean install.

    Greg thanks. I just discovered that machine had problems pulling the info for the oss, non-oss, and packman repositories so it was not listing kernel-default. I looked right after upgrading to 11.4 and it didn't give any errors saying it couldn't get the info. But now it did so I rebooted it and then it was able to pull the info for those and all repositories and now it shows up. Really weird that a reboot would fix that.

    Maybe something was wrong with your connection. Anyway I'm glad it works now.

    Not that I know of, I was ssh -X in to the box and displaying yast2 on my laptop then went to the console on the box and same thing and it was able to get all the other repository's info just not those 3. On to the next 11.4 issue... USB now...

    All in all though I have to say they did a good job on 11.4, the upgrade itself was flawless on 2 boxes so far. I had grub config problems with upgrades and installs on 11.3 were they would not boot and had to manually fix the device maps and the menus.
