Thread: 42.x to 15.0 upgrade

  1. #1

    Default 42.x to 15.0 upgrade

    I've done successfully two upgrades from 42.2 to 15.0, skipping 42.3, one virtual machine and one physical - laptop with Intel graphics. Both machines are with Xfce DE, packman repo was enabled during upgrade.
    The upgrades completed without a single problem - flawless compared to my previous experience with skip version upgrade 13.2 --> 42.2.
    The only, but huge disappointment is the 4.12 kernel in 15.0 Beta. Is this out-of-support kernel version meant to be the one that ships with the 15.0 release?

    AFAIK this kernel is not out-of-support ( and won't be for a while from the openSUSE side ), but an LTS kernel.
    And, could you explain what's so disappointing about the kernel version? Any reasons why this version wouldn't suit your needs?
    ° Appreciate my reply? Click the star and let me know why.

    Well, 4.12 is not а LTS kernel as seen from https://www.kernel.org/ , more - it is not maintained anymore.
    I guess SUSE will support it internally, however I'm disappointed.

    And I think I experience deja-vu again - as it was with my Ryzen processor, the Leap 4.4 kernel and the manual remedy with 4.12+ kernels that unlock the full potential of the processor + Nvidia the-hard-way as a consequence, and the constant move over the new kernel versions, as they are not meant to patched before chosen as LTS.

    Now I have to recommend a Linux OS for a brand new laptop with 8th generation Intel CPU. Guess what - full support comes with 4.15 Kernel and the problem is that this new laptop will be used by someone, who does not have the knowledge and will to do things the-hard-way.

    Funny, don't you think - stable but seriously outdated kernel in Leap before its final release in May - for a brand new laptop now.
