Maybe there is a possibility to have this configuration sort of supported.
Right now, the masses are preached "thou shalt not add any obs repositiories or you

Maybe even updated boot disks with newer kernels could be made from time to time to allow
installation on new hardware
(it's hard to add Kernel:stable if the old kernel does not even boot).
So the default would be SLE kernel, but there's an option somewehere in the system
(it might be a pre-added but not
activated Kernel:stable repository or some script that add the repo and installs a newer
kernel in addition to the old
one) that allows relatively unexperienced users make their system work.
Of course with proper disclaimers in the documentation.
(I personally don't care that much, as I generally only own obsolete hardware
--newest non-embedded chipset is from
around 2009-- and still run Kernel:HEAD on some of that just for fun)
As a user, I think this is what I would like. SLE kernel with an easy
posibility to use another, possibly during install. And perhaps on the
next Leap iteration, the mainline kernel would support that machine too.
And it would have to be well explained.
