The latest kernel update of opensuse leap is suffering from kernel panic. I am unable to run large programs like android studio. The pc freezes and caps Lock blinks. It happens also when laptop lid is closed. So how can I degrade the the Kernel to the stock one.


simply /boot/grub/grub.cfg (if they are using grub ) choose as the default kernel option the running kernel, if there is you also have to map the associated initrd to the kernel that you have chosen enter image description here

to view the current kernel version uname -a to see what other kernels are installed ls /boot/

  • Ok But after the two updates the old kernel option in grub has been gone. So Now I need to download the old one but how – pz64_ Sep 18 '16 at 17:06
  • I'm afraid I did not understand , he fits into the grub vesione working kernel – Oscar Andrea Merandi Sep 19 '16 at 12:03
  • The grub has two options. Normal boot and Advanced boot – pz64_ Sep 19 '16 at 13:39
  • in fact , in grub.cfg you can safely change the kernel parameter to normal boot – Oscar Andrea Merandi Sep 19 '16 at 13:52
  • so do I need to set the old kernal version in grub – pz64_ Sep 19 '16 at 13:54
