They were changed to i686 architecture and our system
can't cope with it
as well as kernel maintainers expected I'm afraid.
Now I see in
are kernel-desktop and kernel-pae, but no kernel-default, while in
is only kernel-default. Other than downloading the kernel I want manually and
asking zypper to install it, how does a 11.4 user from Kernel:stable get a
zypper upgrade from a 32 bit kernel that finds all 4G of RAM (e.g. desktop
3.1.3) instead of only 3.5G of RAM (e.g. default 3.3.2), 'zypper in
kernel-desktop-3.3.2-1.1.i686' (which I know does, but is it the right way to
go about it)?
If desktop is the kernel of choice, what's the difference between
kernel-desktop and kernel-desktop-base? Are they exclusive, or does plain add
something to what base already provides, meaning if one wants what plain has
that both are needed?
If my CPU supports PAE, do I want PAE kernel instead of desktop for system
that is both desktop and web server?
I looked for a wiki page to explain such things (site:opensuse.org
stable -forums; site:opensuse.org
choose kernel -forums; site:opensuse.org
select kernel -forums), but found none.
