The linux-next is the tree containing patches that are supposed to be
merged to the next kernel release (as now, 2.6.27). For people who
are interested in testing it or would like to try the latest driver
for new hardwares, I packaged linux-next kernels for SUSE.
The rpm packages are found on the following URL:
This contains the backup rpms up to five releases.
It's also built on openSUSE BS home:tiwai:kernel repo, and its
result is found on:
You can install kernel-next.rpm manually via rpm in addition to the
normal kernel. In some cases, perl-Bootloader doesn't work well (I
hit a copule of times) and you need to fix /boot/grub/menu.lst
The kernel source tree isn't packed to kernel-source.rpm but to
kernel-source-next.rpm so that it doesn't conflict with the normal
kernel. To save the space, I won't keep kernel-source-next rpms
for all releases. Also, src.rpm doesn't contain the linux tarball for
the same reason.
If you have any kernel errors with kerne-next package, please post the
bug report here or LKML immediately. Since linux-next tree is built
up almost everyday, the chance to fix is higher if it's caught up
