For me, it doesn't work on 3/3 11.2 tested. Yast/You doesn't see it
and simply updates one kernel with the newer kernel. The radio
buttons should be replaced with click boxes, but that doesn't happen
unless I list all kernel packages one by one instead of the
documented "provides:..." line above. And several posts in the forum
concur with this.


cer@Telcontar:~> rpm -q kernel-desktop
kernel-desktop-2.6.31.12-0.2.1.x86_64
kernel-desktop-2.6.31.14-0.1.1.x86_64

cer@Telcontar:~> rpm -q --provides kernel-desktop | grep -i multiversion

No multiversion provided. See?

Please read
http://lizards.opensuse.org/2009/12/08/install-multiple-kernel-versions-using-the-yast-qt-package-manager/
comment #6.

"/etc/zypp/zypp.conf:multiversion = provides:multiversion(kernel)" is
a feature available with openSUSE 11.3 and newer.

However, the configuration file that came with 11.2 contradicts you:

##
## Packages which can be installed in different versions at the same time.
##
## Packages are selected either by name, or by provides. In the later case
## the string must start with "provides:" immediately followed by the
capability.
##
## Example:
## kernel - just packages whith name 'kernel'
## provides:multiversion(kernel) - all packages providing
'multiversion(kernel)'
## (kenel and kmp packages should do
this)


Now, both you and Marcus say that only 11.3 and beyond have that feature. Then why does 11.2 says it has it if it doesn't?
