Will be on tumbleweed?

Just asking, because is buggy (google for this kernel and wsize), it has been fixed in, and maybe 3.0 will have other disadvantages.

However, it would be a “nice to have” kernel, so if it causes hours and hours of work, please skip my proposal.


It’s in Index of /repositories/Kernel:/stable/standard so you can try it now, check you have enabled multiversions first though. Then you can use the “versions” tab" after search for “kernel-desktop” in Software Manager.

# grep multiversion /etc/zypp/zypp.conf
##      provides:multiversion(kernel)   - all packages providing 'multiversion(kernel)'
# multiversion = provides:multiversion(kernel)
multiversion = provides:multiversion(kernel)
# zypper  ar -fn "openSUSE Kernel Team Stable repo" http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Kernel:/stable/standard/ kernel:stable

My guess is it’ll be distributed in Tumbleweed soon, if 3.0 openSUSE kernel isn’t shippeable shortly. Been threads about that in Pre-Release/Testing, take a look if you want details. I actually just recently disabled kernel:stable in my Tumblweed as it seemed redundant!

All kernels are “buggy” though even when it seems like they aren’t! >:)

Thank yooouuuhuu!

Synchronisation works again without wsize-commands!

Sure, there is no bug-free software, but that was an annoying one,


No, I was too optimistic: Version crashed later, but with the same bug. And it broke hibernate here. Back on … .2

Brave enough to try a 3.0 kernel from Kernel:HEAD repo? Index of /repositories/Kernel:/HEAD/standard

I didn’t see anything useful like bug reports, when I tried the Google you suggested, perhaps would be worth filing one.

Yeah, installed 3.0 rc-7 and made a full run with “synkron” to sync notebook to Windows-server, which succeeded. No error messages in /var/log/messages. If I encounter such an obstacle again, maybe when a larger amount of data has to be synced, I’ll try to send a bugreport.

Thanks for your suggestion,


As it turns out 3.0 release is delayed, so if there’s a fix in 3.0 not in which ought to be in it might be worth bug report so the stable@kernel.org list gets informed. Nothing like a specific example of breakage ie say 2.6.39 has regression syncing notebook to Windows server with “synktron” which 3.0rc7 seems to fix. The kernel team likes to push patches upstream, rather than carry them in the openSUSE kernel.


OK, I’ll send a bug report later this day. Hopefully they don’t have people like me for breakfast.

Using 3.0 rc7 had another downside: laptop-mode-tools 1.53 can not handle kernel 3.0 rc-x


You should be treated as a Bug Finder Hero :slight_smile:
So you likely have 2 bug finds now, the syncing one with 2.6.39 and now laptop-mode-tools disliking kernel version numbers that are not 2.4 or 2.6. As you posted seperate thread for that, I answered there in Pre-Release already.
