Can we have two parallel kernel versions for some time?
Just to allow the user to temporarily revert to the 3.16 if 3.17 just
doesn't boot on his hardware.
Mat I send to back to read zypp.conf inside the distribution how to have
several flavors of kernel (and kernel-devel) installed.
Work great, and should be the default since 12.3 ...
Matwey has helped us a great deal in keeping ARM Kernel:HEAD building
and working, so I'm sure he knows how to install kernels. ;) I'm rather
interpreting his question as: can both series be maintained in parallel
for users to choose, which takes us back to A. more maintenance work.
Well, in that case, we don't maintain the old kernel, so no longer
burden here. If the new kernel is broken, we fix the new kernel.
IIRC, the openSUSE update repo contains each released package. So
user can take back to the old versions at any time.
