    After installing kernel-devel-4.4.49-16.1 pkg, I executed following cmd and the out put is shown.

    muhammadali-pc:/home/muhammadali # zypper se -s kernel-devel
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...

    S | Name | Type | Version | Arch | Repository
    --+--------------+---------+---------------+--------+-------------------------------
    v | kernel-devel | package | 4.4.57-18.3.1 | noarch | openSUSE-Leap-42.2_OSS-updates
    i | kernel-devel | package | 4.4.49-16.1 | noarch | openSUSE-Leap-42.2_OSS-updates
    v | kernel-devel | package | 4.4.46-11.1 | noarch | openSUSE-Leap-42.2_OSS-updates
    v | kernel-devel | package | 4.4.36-8.1 | noarch | openSUSE-Leap-42.2_OSS-updates
    v | kernel-devel | package | 4.4.36-5.1 | noarch | openSUSE-Leap-42.2_OSS-updates
    v | kernel-devel | package | 4.4.27-2.1 | noarch | openSUSE-Leap-42.2_OSS

    The kernel-devel-4.4.49-16.1 is shown installed, but the same can not be seen in yast, can any help in this regard?

    Thanks

    Did you inspect the version tab on bottom right? Only the latest install is shown in the main list. other version that are available and might be installed show in the version tab

    As I wrote:
    Open Yast---Software, type in the search field "kernel" without qoutes, mark kernel-default-devel, go to the Version Tab and mark your Version.

    Also,
    Should be noted that the original Q was for both headers and source, which are packaged separately.

    If all you need are the headers, then the posts in this thread are covering that.
    And, it should be noted that I've found that although the running kernel and development headers should sync up properly so the correct headers are available to you, that sometimes doesn't happen as it should. To ensure that kernel and its headers versions are sync-d up properly, execute a system update as follows
    Code:
    zypper up
    Additionally, if you need the full source, then you need to search for that specific package and install... AFAIK there is no automatic sync for installing the proper source, you need to manually specify.

    Thumbs up Re: AW: How to download & install speciifc kernel version header & source from zypper or yast?

    As instructed, I checked the yast and searched "kernel-devel", Yast did not show up already installed package kernel-devel package,but zypper did show that package.

    I did a little search and found the option in yast which shows the devel-packages.If the check box is marked yast will show devel-kernel packages. refer following.

    Go to Yast->Options->show -devel packages (F7), and yes i got the solution to my problem.

    You where right Sauerland, thanks man for the valuable information.Thanks all forum members for helping me on my problems.
