  1. #1

    Default Will Leap 42.3 be ready for AMD Ryzen

    Dear all

    Will the upcoming Leap 42.3 since it will come with an old kernel completely support AMD Ryzen processors?

    I would recommend Tumbleweed because you will need kernel 4.10 and higher for support.
    AT this time Tumbleweed is using 4.11 and 4.12.

    See: http://bit.ly/2uQxF6Z
    My Linux Box
    OS:
    openSUSE 51.1 - Plasma 5.12.8
    OS:
    Tumbleweed Plasma 5.16.4
    ASUS P5Q | Intel Quad 6600 @3.02 GHz | 8GB G.SKILL RAM | Nvidia GeForce 750 Ti

    But what if you want a "LTS release".

    (btw Personaly I do not like bit.ly links, I like to see where I'm going)

    Since I need the proprietary Nvidia driver Tumbleweed is not an option for me. I can really not understand why SuSE ships a new distro with an old kernel.

    You can add the stable-kernels repo, and then install a kernel from there:
    URL for repo - "http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Kernel:/stable/standard/"

    It currently has 4.12.3 available.
    openSUSE Leap 15.2 Beta; KDE Plasma 5;

    Go of Thumbleweed.
    Install the necessary paches for compiling Nvidia's drivers from file.run
    https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:NVIDIA_the_hard_way

    When you've finished blocking the kernel update, update it whenever you want

    I've always done that

    The kernel devs have backported a lot of patches from kernels 4.9 - 4.10 and maybe 4.11.

    You can submit a bug report and request the patch for the AMD Ryzen processor.
    It could already have been ported back to the Leap kernel. Ask them.

    http://bugzilla.opensuse.org/

    Here's that link again for the kernel standard repository:

    He never mentioned if he's using an Nvidia card. He's using an AMD Ryzen processor.
    He could be using an AMD graphics card so your second comment about using the Nvidia-Hard Way install is moot.
