Please post exact error - include stuff like numbers and messages that occur leading up to the message.

Have you tried using grub to boot into the old kernel?

I once download a total different kernel then I use .After Grub is loading There was one option more
1) booting from the new kernel
2) Booting from the old kernel
3) Old kernel failsafe
If you really do know the name off the new kernel try with yast2 to go to software management
and uninstall the new kernel

When you boot - right after the BIOS messages (or the starting splash screen) you will get a graphical boot screen ... from there , you press escape to get the grub menu.

Usually, if you install a new kernel, the updater keeps the old entry. So you will have several options to boot into.

Still need that exact error message.

Okay, I also did an update of bluez audio and some video editing packages which stopped bluetooth from working. No bluetooth devices found by hcitool. So I did the online update of recommended options only (gnome update was the only item) and now neither yast nor bluetooth works. Please help! I really don't want to reinstall.

Yast shows a box "error creating client module xxxxx" where xxxxx is whatever you click in the yast GUI. Does anyone have any advice?

Yes, you will get better responses if you start your own thread. It would also be better to put it into the opensuse forum so you can get a response from those familiar with your distro.

@medan: you didn't wait long did you?

In general, there is no point posting if you cannot wait a few days or try several things.

@kallax: Welcome to LQ - I know everyone says to post to an existing thread, but they mean you should post to a thread which is actually relevant to your problem. This one is about YaST, yours is about bluetooth.

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...th+bluez+audio
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...tooth+opensuse
... but, sometimes, it is appropriate to start your own thread.
