    I just upgraded to the newest Linux kernel 2.6.38 a few minutes ago.

    Please follow the directions located at the OpenSUSE WIKI: Tumbleweed Portal which is here: Portal:Tumbleweed - openSUSE .

    After you do this, it will automatically retrieve and install all of the newest stable updates including the new Linux kernel 2.6.38. Then, you can reboot your computer to let it take into effect.

    There are some options open to you.
    If you update to Tumbleweed as suggested by @wellywu, that's fine. But I would not update just the kernel, but you could try it. Beware that it's a move away from stable.

    You could also use this repo:
    Index of /repositories/Kernel:/HEAD/openSUSE_11.4
    But you should be aware that some experience is needed when using these

    There is also what is known as 'Factory Tested'
    But that might be a step too far

    caf4926 why not Index of /repositories/Kernel:/stable/standard ? I assume less risky than head but newer than shipped - it is 2.6.38 whereas shipped is 2.6.37.
    openSUSE Leap 42.1 x64, Plasma 5 & KDE 4.14.x, pretty current proprietary Nvidia drivers (self-compiled)

    If you need that guide, tumbleweed is not for you.

    Thanks, I will use these repos.

    The guide is to be safe, I know how to update the kernel but to know that problems can arise.

    Some questions.

    is really recommended to upgrade the kernel?

    to update the kernel must do something with the nvidia drivers or no problem.

    Depends on how you installed the drivers. If you installed the "hard way" then yes you need to rerun the installation program. If from a repo you may not need to do anything.
