Been running openSUSE Tumbleweed KDE 64Bit for almost a year with no issues.
I did a recent update which also updated the Linux Kernel to 5.10.7-1-default.
After a reboot, “kwin” crashed three times in 30 minutes?
Great OS, thanks!

That way, I keep on older kernel. There are comment lines in that file explaining what you can use on that line.
Currently, I have kernel 5.9.14-1 in addition to the two most recent kernels. When we get a 5.11 kernel, I will remove that 5.9.14-1 kernel so that a 5.10 kernel becomes the oldest (the one that is kept).
Secondly: You can try looking in the older snapshots in
to see what you can find. I’m not sure whether there will be a 5.9 kernel there, but you can probably find an earlier 5.10 kernel (5.10.1 or 5.10.2). But make those changes to “/etc/zypp/zypp.conf” first, so that whatever older kernel you install won’t be immediately removed.
I think you can use “zypper” directly on a downloaded “rpm”. Or you can use the “rpm” command.
What I do, is that I have a directory that I call “rpmdir”. And I have configured that as the “rpmdir” repo (a repo as a plain directory with rpm files). Configuring that is an option in Yast Software Repositories. I normally leave that repo disabled, but I enable it when I want to install a downloaded “rpm” file.
I installed the older Linux Kernel.
When I boot the computer and select the older Linux Kernel the computer does not boot into a graphical desktop?
Just see console-like screen with text to log in?
(I log in and it is just text)
