The latest one appears to be misconfigured in the repository.

Have you tried the latest kernel from the 12.1 update repo too?

I am on 11.4, which is still at 2.6.x

Suggestions on who to contact or how to fix it on my end. I've tried
installing several days apart and all attempts failed, so it doesn't look like
a change propagation problem.

Please call

osc maintainer --email Kernel:vanilla

osc requires an account, or at least asks for username and presumably
password. I once had a SuSE beta tester account, but I doubt I can recall it.
This route has too many hoops to jump through. I may yet choose to go this
route, but not today. I have been sick for a week and have no energy for high
demand tasks today.

and file a bug report at and assign it to the
maintainer the osc tool reported. The osc command is part of the osc
package. I expect it's possible to access the same information via the
web UI.

Be this nice and come back here with the bug ID or better a directly
useable URL to make it easier to follow the issue.

Most of the 3.2.x vanilla kernel links on are broken,
i.e., point to non-existent files. The one below works. Haven't booted into it
yet, but the file exists, downloads, and installs without error.
