* Linux Kernel 4.2.3: this will obsolete the existing kernel-desktop
flavor. kernel-default will be used in the future; the update is
supposed to go smooth, but there are chances that some KMP packages
won’t be auto-updated. Keep an eye out for them
Also note that this will obsolete the all previous kernel-desktop
packages. The multi-version doesn't work across different kernel
flavors, unfortunately, thus after the update, there can be only one
kernel-default left. At the next update, the previous kernel-default
will be left again, of course.

If you want to keep the old boot kernel at this time, try to keep the
last running kernel-desktop.rpm (e.g. download via zypper), and
install it manually after updating to kernel-default.

- my first experience of new kernel-default with xfce desktop : my
xfce-start froze my system : had to turn off power .

thank you very much Takashi for your good advice to d/l via zypper the
last running kernel-desktop and install manually . . . saved my bacon
. . . thank you




- after re-booting with my Takashi-lifeboat saved last running
kernel-desktop ,
i tried again to re-boot with new kernel-default

however, this second-attempt with new kernel-default again totally
froze my system when
starting xfce .

again had to turn off power , and was able to re-start with kernel-desktop

thus, seems XFCE does not like kernel-default
Hm, it's surprising. The kernel flavor difference between
kernel-desktop and the new kernel-default is really minimal, and this
alone shouldn't be the cause of freeze. There must be another missing

Did you install any KMPs?


- i do not believe so { as i do not know meaning of KPM }

KMP is meant "kernel module package". For third-party kernel modules,
etc. Try to run "rpm -qa | grep kmp".

the kernel that freezes me is : kernel-default-4.2.1-1.4.x86_64

And which kernel worked? Please check the outputs of
rpm -qi kernel-desktop | grep GIT
rpm -qi kernel-default | grep GIT
to see the git commit ids of working and broken kernels.

I'm asking this because there can be any other changes between them,
not only the change of kernel flavor, that broke your system.
