at SUSE, we are currently discussing the future of merging releases
from -stable kernel tree into SLE. There is a fear of regressions
caused in the enterprise distribution as well as a fear of high patch
count which in most cases cannot be reviewed properly with our power.
I would like to know your opinion about merging -stable kernels into
 The releases numbered by the third numbers after major release
numbers, e.g. 3.2.1 or 3.2.2.
I never had trouble with stable upgrades, so upgrading openSUSE-12.1 to
lastest 3.1.x should be fine, however those are usually only maintained
for some months, until the next release comes out.
says, that 3.1.10 already was the last one.
so what do we do for the remaining 16 months of openSUSE support?
option 1) Maintain 3.1.x stable kernels ourselves for the remaining time
That is what worked well so far in all the past releases.
option 2) Upgrading from 3.1.x to 3.2.x (and later
3.3.x etc) could be
an option - but I sometimes had trouble with such changes with drivers
that got dropped from staging, replaced by others, new bugs introduced,
incompatible userspace, etc.
option 3) Downgrade to long-term-supported 3.0.x kernel for openSUSE.
