It's NOT supposed to be bragging about how your kernels are bigger and
better than everybody else who has non-default (who all seem to be doing
the same bragging, I hasten to add).

So what you are asking for is 'install and don't change anything'.
Don't alter any of the *.conf files, don't add extra repositories.
Ultimately this also means don't use zypper or its GUI equivalent in YaST to
As I said, claiming that the kernel with the of the one in the distribution is
meaningless if patches have been applied to it by the regular update process.
At least I'm being honest by admitting that kernel to which update changes are
applied is a new, a different kernel and should be recognised as such by renumbering.
The only 'bigger' kernels under discussion are those that are bigger because
have the extra mkiss module file.
