Thread: Updating kernel 11.4

  1. #1

    Default Updating kernel 11.4

    I'm trying to figure out how to update the kernel in 11.4 from the repository. I have the stable repo added, but i'm not sure how to get it updated.

    My question is WHY?!

    If your kernel meets all requirements about your hardware and you have no quirks and gremlins, I will advise you to go to YaST and TABOO kernel to prevent it from updates.

    Which are in most cases useless for anybody running a kernel version which
    just works.
    The only exception to this are security fixes.
    I cannot understand why someone wants to update just because there is
    something (and it can even be worse) you can update without any rationale.

    If a new kernel brings improvements and new features depends on your system.
    Better support for wlan chip xyz helps nobody who has chip abc and so on.

    Wait, your kernel based on opensuse OSS repo and update repo. So if you want to upgrade your kernel you must find the current update repo.

    So and I have Amd radeon 6990 and Amd processor, but in my opinion, before making upgrade save your files.

    Upgrading processing
    Code:
    su
    Code:
    # zypper addrepo -f <Kernel's repo>
    Code:
    # zypper dup
    And reboot.
