Don't bet too much on that. I know SuSE tend to back-port important features
which you might not get from the source. I guess as long as you leave the
SuSE kernel in place, you probably don't need to worry about rpm
dependencies. I'm not sure exactly what I'd have to change these days to
point to the correct boot image and initrd, but I'm loath to change things
that SuSEconfig has under management, unless I use YaST to do it. If you do
touch those files, you better pay close attention when applying patches, etc.
SuSEconfig won't fix them up for you as it would its own work.
