kernel update via YOU


Hi, Trying to update but the kernel patch from YOU causes conflict when installed. Asks to roll back to previous version. I know one should probably do it from boot via newer disc, but what if you have newest disc.

Does one have to complie new kernel and then reboot to it then delete old one?
Checked which kernel running forget the command to see if the kernel is same as non gpl kernel. It was. Please advise to what I should do.

Update the kernel and reboot. How complex is that?

Are you running you or did you download the patch and install it manually?

The kernel update consists of two packages, the kernel-default and kernel-default-nongpl (and kernel-source, if installed). If you download only one, this may cause the conflict. Try to run the update from YOU.

It is not as simple as reboot, I have kernel-smp 2.6.8.24 and same for nongpl. It wants to install a patch 2.6.8.24.14 when the system does reboot I runs fine, but doing a system update shows that this patch causes conflicts and is rolled back to just 2.6.8.24 reboot then the system update shows no
conflict.

I am not sure what actually happens during system update, but there is a reason why SUSE recommends to run a system update from a boot CD instead of a running system. Probably there are some inconsistence between the old kernel that is still in memory and the new kernel and its dependencies. This should not happen if you run a system update from a boot CD of the newer version.
