"The kernel" as in "the one you can get from": yes.

"The openSUSE kernel" may have special add-ons/features/config
parameters that are specific to openSUSE. So there is a difference
between the "vanilla" kernel (which is quite like the one)
and the openSUSE kernel as in /Kernel:/stable/standard.

Just my 2¢

Thanks, Werner.

I would suspect that the config parameters would be the ones which would make the kernel openSUSE-specific otherwise the kernel would be more proprietary which is not what Linux is all about - I think :-) .


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
