On 21 July, Linux kernel 3.0 was released by Linus Torvalds, bringing some new features such as Btrfs data scrubbing and automatic defragmentation, Microsoft Kinect and Apple iSight webcam support, AMD's Llano Fusion APUs support, wake on WLAN, XEN Dom0 support and many new drivers which allow Linux to work with a host of new hardware components.

This tutorial explains how to install this kernel on your stable openSUSE 11.4 installation, replacing your current 2.6.37 kernel. And as a bonus, we'll also show you how to escape the upgrade mill with Tumbleweed. Thanks to the unique Tumbleweed repository, you'll not only always have the latest Linux kernel but also the newest Firefox, LibreOffice, Scribus, Evolution, digiKam and all those other applications which make openSUSE such a great OS.
