has these. Anyone know reasons for or against trying to use any of them on
a production server? My problem is
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=406035 which is marked fixed,

Can anyone tell why the above bug's owner claims its fix amounts to a new
feature preventing fix's inclusion in 11.0 updates?

but for 11.1, not 11.0. For the reasons listed in the thread
http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse/2008-12/msg01969.html I'd rather not be
forced into 11.1 if possible.

Install it with rpm -ihv and see whether it works - if not, go back to the
old
one. rpm -i keeps both installed ;)

I used for some time the 11.1 kernel (from the 11.1 repository) on 11.0
(until
October) and that worked fine but changes have been done afterwards as well.

I installed .27 on an old ICH4 P4 GX260 PATA host I use for testing. Its 11.0
partition is on hda21, and so using piix legacy driver. After a while it
locked hard while in runlevel 3. Then I installed .27 on a newer ICH7 P4
RAID1 SATA host "big31" using libata (not my new ICH8 server, but similar in
being almost as new). So far big31 hasn't done the same. Can anyone look in
the boot.msg & messages logs in http://fm.no-ip.com/tmp/SUSE/110/ and tell me
if the lockup might have been due to the .27 kernel rather than piix driver
or hardware failure?
