    Default When will Linux Kernel 2.6.38 be available for 11.3 & 11.4?

    Linux Kernel 2.6.38 was officially released on 3/15. This kernel upgrade promises to fix the driver issues for video cards with 1080P, and has a number of other great features. Any idea when this will be available for SuSE 11.3 & 11.4? Also, if this kernel proves to be a workable solution, are their plans for re-releasing 11.4 using this kernel?

    Not in updates
    You would need to add the kernel head repo

    or build yourself
    Tumbleweed_KDE

    Or wait for that kernel to arrive in the Tumbleweed Project repo and upgrade it from there, but that is likely to be after the Kernel:Head repo has it.

    wouldn't kernel:stable be the safer bet and it does have 2.6.38
    openSUSE Leap 42.1 x64, Plasma 5 & KDE 4.14.x, pretty current proprietary Nvidia drivers (self-compiled)

    Whatever... 2.6.38 arrived already in the Tumbleweed repo. Which one is better? You can check and compare the levels in each repo.

    I look at this with trepidation as 2.6.38 has been really bad for me on my laptop using Arch. Can someone confirm if SuSE patched this one: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=33872 up ? Thanks.
