To install an official SUSE update kernel, download the update RPM from the SUSE FTP server or a mirror like ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/. To determine the version of your current kernel, look at the version string with cat /proc/version. Alternatively, check to which package the kernel (/boot/vmlinuz) belongs with rpm -qf /boot/vmlinuz.

Before installing this package, make a backup copy of the original kernel and the associated initrd. As root, enter the following two commands:

cp /boot/vmlinuz-$(uname -r) /boot/vmlinuz.old
cp /boot/initrd-$(uname -r) /boot/initrd.old 

Then install the new kernel with the command rpm -Uvh <packagename>. Replace packagename with the name of the kernel RPM to install.

Since SUSE LINUX 7.3, reiserfs is the standard file system. It requires the use of an initial RAM disk. Therefore, use the command mk_initrd to write the new initial RAM disk. In current SUSE LINUX versions, this is done automatically when installing the new kernel.

To be able to boot the old kernel, configure the boot loader accordingly (for more information, refer to 7. Booting and Boot Managers). Finally, reboot to load the new kernel.

To reinstall the original kernel from the SUSE LINUX CDs, the procedure is almost the same, except you copy the kernel RPM from the directory boot on CD 1 or the DVD. Now, install as described above. If you receive an error message saying that a newer kernel rpm is already installed, add the option --force to the above rpm command.
