Its very frustrating that updating from Yast causes kernel updates to
delete the /lib/modules directory for the old kernel.
Worse, if the new kernel wasn't installed correctly, the old kernel
won't boot either lacking needed modules.
Don't use YaST. Use Smart.

This is totally unrelated to above problem, smart will break it
the same way.

Ciao, Marcus
This is indeed very annoying....
