How to Update Kernel in SuSE 9.1
I set SuSE 9.1 Personal up a few days ago and everything, except sound, is working great. I have been advised that the sound problem is related to an issue between my sound chip (VIA VT8233) and the Linux kernel in SuSE 9.1 (2.6.5-7.111.19). The fix---update the kernel to what's used in SuSE 9.2.
That sounds easy enough, but, being a total Linux newb, I am not clear on how to do it. Also, I set my PC up to dual boot Linux and windows. Windows crashed after the first install and I ended up wiping that partition clean and starting over. (I should have read the dual boot sticky iun this forum first.) It was a real pain recovering from the installation so I am a little anxious about changing things. I use Grub as my boot loader. Will changing the kernel mess up Grub's configuration?
All advice is most welcome.
