Akmod Equivalent for openSUSE
Tumbleweed related as opposed to 11.4 related
Fedora has this really nice tool called Akmod or Automatic Kernel Module, which builds kmods on boot when you load into a new kernel that doesn't have kmods or to use the openSUSE term kmps. As we now have a rolling release in openSUSE: Tumbleweed this kind of functionality is more important than ever. Unless there are plans for rebuilding the kmps for Tumbleweed each time there is a new kernel. Which doesn't seem to be the case with the Nvidia kmp only supporting up to 2.6.34 series.
Because we have a rolling release now and this rolling release has new kernels but there aren't for instance new Nvidia kmps to support it but an akmp or whatever you want to call it would fix that
Set user benefit
You can add different relations here, for example duplicate features, obs projects, urls...
To embedd an image you can simply upload it to paste.opensuse.org and add a relation to its raw url.
Set release notes
A user wants to run the rolling release version as opposed to the version based version because it better suits his needs to not have to reinstall every 8 months,
This user updates to all the latest packages in Tumbleweed but unfortunately the latest kmp is for the last version release and so the user is forced to fall back to either the open source drivers which as of yet are not up to the user's needs, or fall back to the older kernel.
an Akmod equivalent would fix this problem
