Have 3 kernel, which to use?

::Correction::] I have 4 actually ::Correction::]

I not knowingly (yes, I know that is stupid) installed additional kernels to my computer. Now I have these:

2.6.34.7-0.5-default
2.6.34.7-0.5-pae
2.6.34.7-0.5-xen
2.6.34.7-0.5-desktop

I am not sure about which one to keep, which ones to delete. I am using a laptop, if that is related.

Thanks in advance.

AFAIK You only need this one.
xen is for virtualization
pae is a kernel supporting more than 4GB of RAM on 32bit systems but without openSUSE patches
default is without pae

Do you know what is the difference between desktop and default ones? I am curious because I use laptop, so does that make any difference?

Like I said AFAIK default is without PAE so it will not ‘see’ more than 4 GB of RAM on a 32bit system. Desktop comes with PAE included.

Greg

Thank you :slight_smile:

No problem. Someone might give You more detailed information on this.

Best regards,
Greg

Hmm. So I should use the desktop one then? I am using it for personal needs, rather than being a server.

Yes indeed
Use kernel-desktop (which FYI, also has PAE support)
