What is the frequency of kernel updates in SLE?
It's roughly once per two months.
Can we use that same frequency and the same updates?
We can, and it means less frequent updates.
Also, we have slightly different policies about the security updates between Leap and SLE. For SLE, a fast-path update is based on the previous released kernel while we just take the full updates at the moment on Leap.
If in doubt do what SLE does unless there's an advantage of doing it differently.
The obvious advantage is that you get the fix more quickly than SLE. For SLE customers, we provide official PTF per request via L3, but it's not the case for openSUSE.
For non kernel maintainers the kernel is confusing so reducing the number of different sources levels floating around is beneficial I think :-)
It just slows down the update releases, but the sources remain different between SLE and Leap, so it doesn't help reducing your confusion in this regard, unfortunately :)
On a «commercial and advertising side» getting frequent update which contain security fixes and bug fixes on time (most of the time quickly than the others) is also an advantage ;-) -- Bruno Friedmann Ioda-Net Sàrl www.ioda-net.ch Bareos Partner, openSUSE Member, fsfe fellowship GPG KEY : D5C9B751C4653227 irc: tigerfoot -- To unsubscribe, e-mail: email@example.com To contact the owner, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
