Opensuse 11.2 OBS Head Kernel Source Question.

Hi Team,

   I want to thank carlos for all the support, thanks however I had somewhat of a simple questioned I tried out the latest revision to the Kernel of Day for Opensuse 11.2 built against the master. kernel-default-2.6.36-rc3.10.1.i586.rpm however looking at the tree it appears Novell/Suse doesn't release the source.rpm thinking I could recompile it to support the dependencies that I'm missing. See the message below-

Or would kernel-default-2.6.36-rc3.10.1.nosrc.rpm be considered the source?

suselizard32 I really can not recommend you go with kernel 2.6.36-rc3 or what ever number it is at now. For instance, it does not work with the latest nVidia video driver and other problems have been reported with 2.6.36. However, if you place the repository for this kernel/head version into your Software Repositories and then do a manual selection of this version (looking at the versions tab) for all loaded kernel files that match the new kernel, you should be able to install it. I would wait though until 2.6.36 has been out longer than it has been out so far and I would not load it unless it offered a fix of some sort over your present kernel version.

I did see your reply to my kernel compile script thread and it (my new script) can be used to properly in stall the latest stable kernel version as I recall, which is working just fine for me.
