    Default Upgrade the kernel using yast or zipper

    Is there any way to upgrade the kernel from downloaded source code, using yast or zipper (by custom installation repository or something like that)?

    I think the question might be better expressed as "what's the best way
    to build a kernel from source, ideally using opensuse's system
    management infrastructure?"

    With yast or zypper? No way that I know of.

    But it's easy with the wonderful S.A.K.C script. Look here:

    Yes, but it was only advice to update your kernel in line with current updates, which have not done. It will be fine to do it.

    Reading the other thread makes it clear to me that you do not really want to update your kernel from SOURCE. As you are saying you're new to suse and linux it would not be a very good idea anyway. Do the following:

    1. Yast --> Software Repositories
    Make sure that the update repository for your release is enabled.

    2. Yast --> Software Installation (==> view the update repository)
    Your current kernel will appear in blue. Click the refresh button. Accept changes.

    3. Reboot

    You need to reboot after a kernel update.

    It might be an idea to let us check your repos. Post result of

    Code:
    zypper lr -d
