Updated to kernel 4.5.0-3.1 but Grub menu still has 4.4.3-1 only


I just updated to kernel 4.5.0-3.1-x86_64 dated April 8. This is also shown in Yast > Software Management (Search). However upon reboot, Grub menu only shows kernel 4.4.3-1 (dated Feb. 26) as the latest available kernel.

Any suggestions? Thanks for your help.


zypper se -si kernel
cat /proc/cmdline

Manually change it in Yast -boot loader

First be sure you are running what you think you are

Just updated TW and it boots as default kernel 4.5.0-3. Default menu option does not name kernel version at all (it is called simply “openSUSE Tumbleweed”) so please explain where exactly do you expect to see it.


Thanks. Your method works.


I confirmed kernel 4.4.3-1 via the command uname-r. Also when I rebooted the screen showed “Welcome to openSUSE Tumbleweed kernel 4.4.3-1…”

May be something went wrong during kernel installation and bootloader configuration was not updated. Run “grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg” and reboot. If you still boot into “wrong” kernel, post /boot/grub2/grub.cfg and output of “ls -l /boot”.
