Could anyone please answer this one for me: are the kernels available
in, say, the .../Kernel:/stable/standard repository specifically
written to be used ONLY in openSUSE or can they be used in any other
Linux distro?


They are for openSUSE
Now this has me all confu-sed :-) . One says for all, one says only for
oS :-) . Do we take this to a vote?8-) .

Now I am gonna confuse you more ;P ..Seriously, do not use openSUSE kernel
packages in other distributions.
OK :-) .

But isn't the kernel, the main stay of Linux, supposed to be "universal"
and what someone adds to it is available to all?
The kernel might work, however all the scripts we have in the rpm will
not easily hook into other distributions.

Thanks Marcus.

I thought as much- that it had more to do with the installation scripts rather than the kernel itelf.


Using openSUSE 12.3, KDE 4.10.5 & kernel 3.10.1-1 on a system with-
AMD FX 8-core 3.6/4.2GHz processor
16GB PC14900/1866MHz Quad Channel Corsair "Vengeance" RAM
Gigabyte AMD3+ m/board; Gigabyte nVidia GTX550Ti 1GB DDR5 GPU
