 Solution 4: keep obsolete util-linux-2.36.2-150300.4.28.1.x86_64

Since util-linux seems to be pretty vital I don’t feel like trying any of the suggested solutions. I have no idea what the problem is or what I can do about it.
Any suggestions?

Solution 3…

Its the kernel of Leap 15.3…


Thanks, switched to kernel default and got passed the block. No idea why I was using preempt. :cowboy_hat_face::+1:

Long ago there were other people that het preempt installed. IIRC that was due to a 1-click installation (never use that please). They run into troubles and with help of the forums they repaired that already a long tine ago.

For some reason you still seem to have it without much problems. In any case it will be repaired now.

BTW, whenever you post computer output here (as above), always take the trouble to include one more line above and one more line below the output within your copy/paste. Now we have output, but we have no idea what you did (well we have a vague idea, but vague ideas lead to assumption and assumption leads to misunderstanding).

so not



henk@boven:~> uname -r

Today I migrated from 15.3 to 15.4. and found my Network Adapter rtl8189 not working. When investigating this issue, I decided to reinstall (zypper install —force kernel-default) from kernel-repo. Due to the “conflict with ‘filesystem<16’” a single solution was offered to me: “do not install”. How to proceed?

Sorry, but hanging your different questions at the end of an existing problem thread will not help to draw the attention of the people you need.
Please start a new thread, with a good title and a good description (e.g. not a vague “I migrated from 15.3 to 15.4”, but a description of which way you did this, there are more then one way to do this).
