Why doesn't 'zypper lu' show available kernel(s)? Is this WAD, or is a bug
needed to be filed that adding a new kernel with multiversion(kernel)
amounts to an upgrade?


I guess "zypper lu" does not display what "zypper dup" will do.

True. But even though 'up' would not install the new kernel, 'zypper lu
-a' should show *all* installed packages which have any newer version
available (and this should include also the newer kernel). Plain 'zypper
lu' only shows those which will actually get installed by 'zypper up'.

dup is for dist upgrade, lu is for normal RPM updates.

Not sure if there is a list option for dup.

No, there isn't.
