Excellent. Where to find more of these valuable hints (except man
zypper)? ;-)

It's a new feature of 11.1. Sometimes it seems the devs hide the golden
new treasures for us to find ;-p

It might have hidden pitfalls and bugs. ;)

e.g. it leaves _all_ previous kernels installed currently.

I know... it is a problem for me, as I have a separate /boot partition
with limited space. I have to remember it before updating.

I wonder... does zypper a calculation of needed space before downloading
and installing? Does it fail gracefully, allowing one to make more space
and hit "retry" before aborting?

It will report an error you will see and not install the RPM. But I guess
just during installation of the RPM.

Ciao, Marcus
