I want to upgrade my kernel (openSuse 11.1) to

I followed the instructions from [1] but it didn't upgrade my openSuse
11.1, it installed the 11.3 version

Is there a kernel repository and then add it to zypper and do the upgrade?

Or this [2] is the best way?


if i understand you correctly, you already upgraded your system to openSUSE
do you have any problems with the standard kernel, or do you just want to try
'latest & greatest' kernel available?

judging from your question, you don't seem to be too familiar with openSUSE,
according to your email signature, you're studying something like "system
engineering" or whatever, and are a long time linux user. it might be useful to
read some more about kernel installation / compilation under openSUSE by
the forums for this topic ( or the mailing list
archives (

you find the kernel repo here:

and here's information about the "kernel of the day," a daily snapshot of the
kernel git repository:

needless to say, any of these things may break your system if not done
(tip: to install a new kernel via yast or zypper but leave the previous kernel
intact, you'll have to edit /etc/zypp/zypp.conf, un-commenting the line that
"multiversion = provides:multiversion(kernel)").
