convert from Kubuntu to OpenSUSE? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Just tell APT to ignore kernel package updates. sudo aptitude hold linux-image (and perhaps the actual versioned package as well) should do what you want. You can also do it through Synaptic. I don't think apt-get provides any commands to expose this functionality of dpkg.

I'm currently playing around with openSUSE 11.4 and really enjoying it

I would hazard a guess that kernel updates requiring reboots might be part of the frustration. There are few other packages which require that mild annoyance.

its cause ubuntu is a pack rat would be my guess there is no need to hold 30 different kernels on one system all having their own grub entry and taking up disc space...

they arent hard to clean out, but its REALLY annoying to some one like me :/ i prefer debians method of just keeping one stable kernel, and security patching the hell out of it

really, i HATE opensuse lol... its slower than most distros ive given an honest try... zypper/yast is THE slowest package manager in the main stream... id rather install everything with rpm if i ran opensuse just because zypper is horribly annoying and slow :/ and the community tends to be far from helpful (at least when i asked a question...) and they like to be really stuck on the programs that come with opensuse rather than support you in your freedom to choose your own program selection...

in opensuse's defense though, they do have the BEST kde environment from a fresh install that i have ever seen but if kde is the only reason, you can run kde on anything arch linux, debian, fedora...
Kinda meh now...

Especially if you choose another package manager.
