[opensuse] multiple kernels?
Is this a problem? I noticed this when I was running an update on my smaller laptop:

# zypper up
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...

The following 4 package updates will NOT be installed:
audacity flac libFLAC++6 libFLAC8

The following 2 NEW packages are going to be installed:
kernel-devel-4.4.70-18.9.1 kernel-source-4.4.70-18.9.1

I was thinking, I thought I had kernel 4.11 from the kernel:stable repo, as that is what I have been using on this laptop. So, I ran this:

george@tribetrekDell:~> uname -r
george@tribetrekDell:~> rpm -q kernel-devel
george@tribetrekDell:~> rpm -q kernel-default

Sure enough, I am running kernel 4.11, but I have packages for multiple kernels installed, and the update packages that zypper is saying it is going to install are not even matching to the kernel I am using.

Maybe this is contributing to why this system seems so unstable when I am running KDE?

Any ideas on why these multiple kernel packages are installed, and possibly, how to fix? I assumed that when updates have been made in the past, the dependencies features should have removed old packages. I only use zypper up to update my system.
