Re: [opensuse] kernel versions

You haven't responded to my earlier post suggesting to you to start afresh: format your HD and install whatever version of openSUSE you have -- I think you are able to install 42.3. Do that and then after you have this running we can go then walk you thru on how to install the latest, new, kernel. OK?


I have ordered a new PCIe NVMe - M.2 Internal SSD to build a new system on. No std hard drives in this system. The SSD is not due to arrive for a week or so. I would be anxious to try the walk thru you suggest at that time.
I am not against the RPM database concept. I just did not realize it was used to keep track of installed versions etc. I once asked on this list for documentation describing the system architecture and did not receive any relevant responses. RPM originally stood for Red Hat Package Manager. I started under Red Hat and did not realize RPM was critical to opensuse. I would gladly have used the rpm --erase if I had known it was relevant. It is certainly easier than deleting all of the files in /boot and repairing the links.

Thanks, and please have patience.
