just after the error. There should be an entry in the last
line about the segmentation fault.
Or just peruse the log now and search back for it (word "segmentation"
or perhaps "coredump").

I would try "rpmdb --rebuilddb".
This is more a calculated guess than a silver
bullet, but it looks like the
4.20.5 kernel (brand new) is not playing well with the 20181218
kernel-firmware patch. I do know I got new firmware with 4.20.5 on Arch, so I
suspect the same would be needed with openSuSE.
From a recent thread in factory
mail list, I understand it is better to
try the tumbleweed kernel. I can search the explanation if you want.
(Just had a break for dinner...)
Thanks, Carlos, I'll do what you suggest above tomorrow and see what the
log states re the seg. fault.
I'm interested if you can find out if the command "rpmdb --rebuilddb"
I think it doesn't, but now I have my doubts. So please try that one first, and if it
says "unknown option" try "rpmdb --rebuilddb" instead ;-)

This should be rather easy, and even doable with the current
installer. In the online repo setup, you can add your own repo, and
just put OBS Kernel:stable repo there. That's all.
BTW, the kernel in OBS Kernel:stable repo has one big disadvantage.
It's not signed with the official openSUSE key, thus it won't boot
with secure boot. OTOH, if we take the real TW kernel package, it
should work with secure boot, too.
... and last but not least, another bigger disadvantage is the lack of
KMPs. The extra kernel module packages provided for Leap 15.0 kernel
won't be available for this one. If there are alternative ones for
TW, we can take them, though.
Also, the Nvidia KMP build is often broken with each kernel version
update. It'd be another reason to stick with TW kernel, not the
bleeding edge one in OBS Kernel:stable.
There you have.
I pasted it because it is in my archive of important messages re kernel. To post a link I
would have to find it first ;-)
