Bottom line:  Upgrade to 15.1 from 15.0 worked when a direct
install of 15.1 failed.  I suspect something is going on with the Nvidia
frame buffer.

You are right. Kernel is busted for FOSS DDX for NVidia hardware:

The 15.1 release kernel works normally. Update kernel 4.12.14-lp151.28.4
does not.


Thanks Lew and Felix. So this means if I update from 42.3 to 15.1 with the
Nvidia drivers loaded, I can update OK, but on first zypper up when I pull in
the updated kernel, things will break?

For those with NVidia GPU not using non-FOSS software, do your upgrade online:

1-Lock the kernel (zypper al kernel-defaul*)
2-zypper dup upgrade
3-Install release kernel lp151.27 (answer Y to remove lock; it will remain in
effect until you do zypper rl kernel-defaul*)

If using (non-FOSS) NVidia driver or booting using nomodeset, lp151.28 is not

Remote login also works as expected using the lp151.28 kernel.

If using Optimus/Prime, you may not be affected by the lp151.28 failure:
