solutions Recommended update for the Linux kernel SuSE Linux Maintenance Web (df7626f46dd207eee70e237647d9c1a6)
Product(s): SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 SP1 for x86
SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 SP1 DEBUGINFO for x86
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 SP1 for x86
This update is necessary because of an updated version of perl-Bootloader that fixes problems during a kernel upgrade.
First, find out which kernel package to use, for example with
rpm -qf /boot/vmlinuz
Download the kernel image fitting your setup and install it with:
rpm -Fvh kernel-*.rpm
In case you are using LILO as bootmanager, please make sure that you also execute the command
after installing the update for the system to remain bootable. If you are using GRUB you don't need to do anything.
Finally, reboot the system with
shutdown -r now
to load the new kernel (replace "now" with the appropriate amount of time to allow local users to cleanly log out, for example "+5" for five minutes.)
