    Default kernel 4.17

    Hi,

    I would like to install last kernel (4.17).
    I add repository "download.opensuse.org/repositories/Kernel:/HEAD/standard/".
    Then "zypper ref, zypper dup --from kernel repo"
    Last kernel did not install.

    Code:
    zypper se -si kernel
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...

    Ok. Thanks. I will try.
    In fact it will install the same packages like "/Kernel:/HEAD/standard/"
    ucode-amd-20180518-218.1.noarch" and kernel-firmware-20180518-218.1.noarch
    .

    "zypper dup" does not switch vendor by default since quite some time. Does "zypper dup --allow-vendor-change" work? Or you can explicitly install exact version from another repository, then zypper will offer vendor switch.

    I did not said that I write "zypper dup".
    I write
    Code:
    zypper dup --from kernel repo
    .
    Kernel repo is number 9 (my repositories) so I did "zypper dup --from 9".

    Default You should know: OpenSUSE's masters don't really like you doing like this ...

    Zypper is an excellent spftware management backend. However, in some cases like this one it will stand all your trials without yielding it : )
    Me, I've always updated any OpenSUSE distro on to at least the kernel version currently presented as stable, so I know about the problem. When having added the kernel repo you prefer (either STABLE OR HEAD, both will always make troubles) do as follows:
    1. Do NOT give the additional kernel repo a higher priority for this might disturb later automatic updates!
    2. Go into the graphical Yast software manager, check the option "allow vendor change", then from inside the graphical software tool do update each kernel package "by hand" - no fear, because in an ordinary case it's three packages only you can easily identify from the shown newer versions available outlined by colour, too, two "kernel-..." packages and one "ucode". So you have to use the package search function twice, first for "kernel", afterwards for "ucode".
    3. After reboot you'll have the most modern kernel in use, but every automatic update following later on will update both kernels, the leading one you have chosen and the distribution's specified one as well - just for your accomodation because you might want to fall back.
    Cheers.

    Thank you all for help.
    But I think I found the problem.I think that repository is not sync yet.
    I have kernel-default and kernel-devel (4.16.11-1).
    Zypper do not want to upgrade because in repository there is only kernel-default-4.17.rc5, kernel-default-devel-4.17.rc5 and kernel-devel-4.17.rc6.
    I tried to explicity install rc5 but it not want because nothing provide devel-rc5 (only rc6).

    Now is working with kernel 4.17rc7 because there are kernel-default and kernel-devel. The reason because not worked last time - there wasn't the same kernel-default and kernel-devel (number).
    I tried the new kernel because I read that with kernel 4.17 some of the AMD errors messages from boot will disappear. Now the only error is that with sp5100_tco.

    OBS was *very* busy (overloaded) the last couple of days.
    That might be the reason why it took a bit longer for the new kernel to appear.

    Or maybe it failed to build (while kernel-devel succeeded) and that got fixed meanwhile.

    PS: kernel-devel is noarch (i.e. the same package for 32bit and 64bit), while kernel-default-devel and kernel-default are of course arch-specific.

    So probably the 32bit kernel just was built/available earlier than the 64bit kernel. (OBS has to build a *lot* more packages for 64bit than 32bit...)
