Hello all! long time no see (what can I say Suse is a solid os, it just doesn’t break but anyway upgraded to 12.2 and when running the updates I received the following message.
kernel-desktop-base-3.4.11-2.16.1x86_64 conflicts withkernel-desktop=3.4.11-2.16.1 provided by kernel-desktop-3.4.11-2.16.1.x86_64
replacement of kernel-desktop-base-3.4.11-2.16.1.x86_64 with kernel-desktop-base-3.4.18-1.1.x86_64
Now when it comes to low level things like the kernel I like to be 200% sure of what I’m doing before I do it, and in this case I’m not, so any help or input about this issue would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
To put it simple, (as far as I know) kernel-desktop-base is a “smaller” version of kernel-desktop. I had the same problem when I updated from 12.1. You just have to remove the other, and stick with one.
Also, do not try to mix kernel flavors. If you install kernel-desktop, than everything kernel related should be desktop.
Thanks Horvath, your solution worked great, (also caused my vmware player to work as well which, before was throwing me a kernel-headers error) I wasn’t aware that a base kernel installed with a desktop kernel could cause so many issues, but I guess you learn something new everyday
