    Default How do I upgrade my kernel?

    Hi. I am using OpenSUSE 11.4 64 bit with GNOME. I also use the Tumbleweed and Packman for Tumbleweed repositories. Accoording to uname -r, my current kernel version is 2.6.37.1-1.2-desktop.

    How do I safely update to the latest stable kernel version?

    I am new to OpenSUSE. Please provide step by step directions. Thank you.

    You no longer have 11.4, now you have Tumbleweed, which is for experts, not
    firstcommers.

    Hi,

    Got to yast2->install/deinstall software and in the search field, type kernel. Check the kernel-desktop with version 2.6.38-18.1. and click apply. Don,t deinstall your current kernel in case you cannot boot on the new one.

    I am in YaST2 -> Software Manager. I entered in kernel-desktop and the only version that I see that is available is my current one. I do see a kernel-desktop-base with version 2.6.38-18.1. I am wondering if I installed the right Packman for Tumbleweed repository. What should I do next?

    Alright. I will reduce my repositories list. I seem to be downloading the 2.6.38-18.1 kernel desktop right now. Thank you.
