openSUSE:Kernel of the day
tagline: From openSUSE
If that is not bleeding edge enough for you, you can try our daily linux-next builds. Here is the linux-next project page
This is the one-click through process to get set up with the linux-next package:
Following Kernel of the Day
To automatically track the latest version of KOTD follow these steps:
1) Add the and enable the KOTD repo using zypper. e.x.
zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Kernel:/HEAD/standard KOTD
2) Tell zypper to allow you to have two or more Kernels installed at once by editing /etc/zypp/zypp.conf and adding:
multiversion = provides:multiversion(kernel)
3) Install the latest kernel-default package for your machine. There are various flavors for each architecture but kernel-default is common. e.x.
zypper install -r KOTD kernel-default
4) Reboot into the new Kernel. Please ensure you select the correct version at the bootloader menu.
NOTE: To keep your machine from automatically upgrading change the priority of the KOTD repo above the priority of the other repos
zypper mr -p 100 KOTD
Testing Kernel of the Day
Testing the KOTD in parallel with your currently installed Kernel can be useful to figure out if a bug is fixed upstream already. Follow these steps to install KOTD along side your current Kernel
1) Install the latest kernel alongside your current kernel:
rpm -i --force \ http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Kernel:/HEAD/standard/x86_64/kernel-default-VERSION.x86_64.rpm
rpm -i --force \ http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Kernel:/HEAD/standard/i586/kernel-default-VERSION.i586.rpm
2) Reboot into the new Kernel. Please ensure you select the correct version at the bootloader menu.
