(3) If so, presumably the current kernel now also fixes it? (I have
2.6.22.5-31 and YaST says 2.6.22.17-0.1 is available)

(4) Am I going to regret updating to 2.6.22.17-0.1 for any other reason?

You certainly should update, and not only because of this problem.


(5) I remember some recent posts about how to keep the previous kernel
when updating but can't immediately find it. Can anybody point me to a
how-to?

No howto that I know of. The procedure is simple, if tedious.

1) Manually download all related kernel rpms you have installed and need
to upgrade - don't use yast.

You can get the installed list like this:

cer@nimrodel:~> rpm -q -a | grep kernel
kernel-source-2.6.22.17-0.1
kernel-default-2.6.22.17-0.1
linux-kernel-headers-2.6.22-19
nfs-kernel-server-1.1.0-8 <== no
kernel-docs-2.6.22.5-31
kernel-syms-2.6.22.17-0.1

Or you can see in yast the list of what it wants to install and copy it.


2) Install manually all of them using "rpm -i list_of_kernel_rpms".

3) Review the /boot/grub/menu.lst to check that it is correct before
rebooting.
