Dear listmembers,
after a longer absence from upgrading I decided to test openSUSE 10.2 after it had had been released. Performing the latest kernel update an IMHO unlucky modification in the name distribution popped up that I would like to discuss.

The directory /lib/modules/ is remaining after kernel update to and a part of the modules are linked into a corresponding path within from there.

IMHO this is a very ugly way to do things. If there are modules that are *not* kernel specific the corresponding directory should be called different.

Why keep a reference to a kernel that is actually no reference to this specific kernel? IMHO this
directory should be named in such a way that it is easy to understand that the modules contained within it are to a certain degree version independent, such as


or whatsoever. Keeping the old name is a poor and irritating choice.

Just to point out my 2 cents here ...

Take care

Dieter Jurzitza
