Linux Kernel 2.6.38 was officially released on 3/15. This kernel upgrade promises to fix the driver issues for video cards with 1080P, and has a number of other great features. Any idea when this will be available for SuSE 11.3 & 11.4? Also, if this kernel proves to be a workable solution, are their plans for re-releasing 11.4 using this kernel?
Not in updates
You would need to add the kernel head repo
or build yourself
Or wait for that kernel to arrive in the Tumbleweed Project repo and upgrade it from there, but that is likely to be after the Kernel:Head repo has it.
wouldn’t kernel:stable be the safer bet and it does have 2.6.38
Whatever… 2.6.38 arrived already in the Tumbleweed repo. Which one is better? You can check and compare the levels in each repo.
I look at this with trepidation as 2.6.38 has been really bad for me on my laptop using Arch. Can someone confirm if SuSE patched this one: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=33872 up ? Thanks.
