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.

1 Answer 1


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
