OS 13.2 - Need src, sym, ... for kernel 3.19

Hello.
I have been asked to install kernel 3.19 because of hardware problem ( see : https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=917912 )

Now I can’t install virtualbox

Only kernel 3.16.7-21 src, sym, … are installed on the computer.
1°)
From where to download all the files for 3.19 (src, sym, …) ?

2°) After installing 3.19 files, where to run the command :

Run 'make oldconfig && make prepare' on kernel src to fix it."

3°)How to switch from 3.19 to 3.16; and in case of necessity switch from 3.16 to 3.19.
It seems that 3.19 files have been written directly to /boot and to /lib from the RPM file I have downloaded.

Any help is welcome.

You need kernel-devel, kernel-$flavor-devel and kernel-syms packages for your kernel version where $flavor is desktop, default or whatever else you have installed. They should be available from the same repo where you installed kernel from. You never want to run “make oldconfig” in sources installed by RPM.

After I install the kernel sources, I do:


cd /usr/src/linux
make cloneconfig
make prepare

“cloneconfig” is a *suse addition.
