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.

And if secure boot is enabled, the keys won't be available on another

Thats really depends on what the other distribution does, but yes,
secure boot is also an interesting thing.
