Thread: Keeping an old kernel using zypp.conf

  1. #11

    Default Re: Keeping an old kernel using zypp.conf

    Thanks for submitting the bug.

    So, my problem now is:

    How can I re-install kernel 5.7.11-1 as it appears to have disappeared because of a bug when I had followed the documentation that should have held it?

    This is because there are still some issues with Virtualization with kernel 5.8 (and I do appreciate the fixes that Larry Finger has done to make VirtualBox load with 5.8, but at this point I have no audio in my VMs)
    (and there may be other problems I haven't found yet)

    (and I appreciate, yes, I am using Tumbleweed, so I can should things to break, but in this case I followed what should have been the OpenSUSE way to keep a 5.7 kernel, and there is a bug)

    So what is the OpenSUSE way to go back to a older kernel?

    also, while we're at it, there should be a way to use /etc/default/grub to always boot into a SAVEDEFAULT kernel

    The bug report from a couple of year ago says there was a patch submitted, but the bug is still here in Tumbleweed

    One thread - one question.

    Should I add to the thread from 2017 (about grub SAVEDEFAULT) , or should I start a new one, as the issue still seems to exist?

    (and yes, I've broken that rule again.... sorry)

    Better start a new one. Nobody (a bit exegarated) will look at such an old thread to see if somebody wants to comment on it.
    A new thread comes to the top when people browse the forums.

    These "rules" (in fact good meaning suggestions) are for your own benefit. You need to advertise your problem to the people that matter as good as possible. Don't you think?
