    Default kernel conflict updating

    Not sure if this is the correct forum... however:
    I have this coflict today while doing a zypper dup:

    Code:
    Controllo dei conflitti tra file: ...................................................................................................................................................[errore]
    Rilevati 3 conflitti tra file:
    
    File /boot/.vmlinuz-4.1.6-3-desktop.hmac
      from install of
         kernel-desktop-4.1.6-3.2.x86_64(repo-oss)
      conflicts with file from package
         kernel-desktop-4.1.6-3.1.x86_64(@System)
    
    File /boot/vmlinux-4.1.6-3-desktop.gz
      from install of
         kernel-desktop-4.1.6-3.2.x86_64(repo-oss)
      conflicts with file from package
         kernel-desktop-4.1.6-3.1.x86_64(@System)
    
    File /boot/vmlinuz-4.1.6-3-desktop
      from install of
         kernel-desktop-4.1.6-3.2.x86_64(repo-oss)
      conflicts with file from package
         kernel-desktop-4.1.6-3.1.x86_64(@System)
    What's up?

    Just say "yes", and ignore the conflicts. All will be fine.

    What has happened, is that the same kernel code was recompiled. So the new kernel is really the same as the old kernel, and uses the same filenames, causing that conflict message.
