I don't have to move from 15.1 to 15.2 to
drown in .rpmnew files where
the new 'upgrades' have, for example, dot-conf files, that come into
conflict with my updates.
But WTF, I'm lecturing to the choir.
This is why I dread upgrades.
They blow apart my carefully and carefully considered configured system.

"old standards" still eventually require/call for re-installation. I got
six years before succumbing the last time.
Tumbleweed is one form of 'incrementalism', and a pretty aggressive one at
My use of kernel_Stable is a focused for of aggressive incrementalism.
It would have addressed the OP's problem and is quite compatible with all the
15.1. With nvidia? I can't say based on my own experience; I don't run nvidia;
run intel and my experimental boards run AMD.
I suppose running 'zypper up' daily is another form of 'soft'
Yes i do that and yes I'd recommend looking at it.
It may not be as dramatic as Tumbleweed in it's completeness, it may not last for
the six years, but once you have a stable system, incrementalism is less
disruptive than the 'catastrophism' of a complete upgrade.
if you google for 'gradualism vs catastrophism' you find this to be an ancient
debating issue in both geomorphology and genetics. Both areas have seen pretty
vociferous "discussion" on the matter, so I'd expect nothing gentle here
