But as I am not able to see the name of the packages in the search
results (unless I use the trick with the URL of the Link) it is
still pretty difficult to find a package for the fitting kernel
version number like 3.1.9-1.4

I would like to see the information like the name of the file

How do you like to get this information displayed?

As a mouse pointer over action?
As the name of the file is part of the linked URL
(for example currently: )
this is already the case in a way.
And I suspect there is something shortened in the current layout with the "...".

Messing the screen up should be avoided. The layout must stay as simple
als possible.
As written I would like the layout a switch back to the current layout for the community and home or at least for home repositories.

And why "must" the layout be so simple
for community and home repositories
if they are so 'dangerous'/"probably not tested by anyone"?

without going the way:
(klick, klick, klick, klick, ...)

Maybe I am not learned enough to understand that kernel module
things and I could use kernel modules build for a 3.1.0_1.2-7.1
openSUSE kernel version also for a kernel with a 3.1.9-1.4 version
number but I thought things like that would be important.

As long as the ABI stays stable and bug fixing doesn't require an update
the weak update mechanism handle this.

As the result the /lib/modules/3.1.9-*/weak-updates/updates/nvidia.ko
sym link points to /lib/modules/3.1.0-1.2-default/updates/nvidia.ko for
example in the case you're runnig your system with the default kernel

Thanks for pointer via link and the citation.

So Ralph DeWitt
from and following

uname -a
Linux linux-x9yw 3.1.9-1.4-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri Jan 27 08:55:10
UTC 2012 (efb5ff4) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

would probably be able to use the
as the ABI (here probably: Application binary interface)
has not changed
kernel desktop x86_64 3.1.0_1.2-7.1
kernel desktop x86_64 3.1.9-1.4
if he trusts the work of the user "TheTiger"
(and especially the newest package "Updated at: 2012-03-18 18:39:02+01:00"/"...3.1.0_1.2-7.1...")?

If so thanks for the clarification and education.

Maybe a information/stamp like
"version probably fitting to ...
... openSUSE 12.1 updates from 2012-03-17 0:03:02 ..."/
... current update status..."
"up to date....

...(but not tested)"
could be part of "as simple as possible"
(and avoid further questions/confusion like cited above and mine)?
