    Angry Why Kernel-Downgrade?

    This morning a 'zypper dup' with tumbleweed repo properly activated wants to downgrade my kernel to kernel-default-2.6.37.6-0.5.1.x86_64 (Kernel package changes from tumbleweed to opensuse-repo) which I refused to install after getting nvidia-driver and virtualbox running with the tumbleweed package.

    Does anybody have a clue of the reason for this downgrade?

    Thanks in advance.

    This probably was just a temporary kernel build failure.
    Just do a repo refresh with "sudo zypper ref" to fix it.

    I too have the problem of zypper dup wanting to take the kernel back to the standard openSUSE 11.4 kernel. It's not meant to be, surely. It's more likely a left-field dependency issue. I'm going to look at it in detail this weekend if it doesn't go away by then.

    Today the issue is gone for me too.
    It's a good tactic to wait a few days if you suspect strange dependency issues. I've seen this sort of thing happen a couple of times in the past months and resolve after a few days.
