I have a non bootable external USB hard drive. I used Instlux to install SUSE 10.3 on it. It worked. Nothing else worked.
I clicked on the necessary updates to be done from the KDE desktop and accepted them. They completed. I had to reboot because of a Kernel update. Now I can't get to the desktop and I am seeing all sorts of messages that are telling me to update my kernel.
I believe that a bootable CDROM is necessary to adjust the openSuse folder items to reflect the new kernel after a kernel upgrade. If I am on the wrong track on this I would like to know but I don't see that many complaints about something like this happening after an upgrade.
