        Click "show experimental packages" and "show community packages" to see all that can be readily installed.

        When I find a version I want from a repo that looks decent, I add the repo and update it that way, rather than simply downloading and installing the package.

          All of the experimental packages for Leap 15.0 say Kernel 4.12.14. I'm really eager to try Leap for my work machine, as I need stability, but I'd also like to have the recent improvements of 4.16/4.17.

            I am not sure I understand the numbering pattern.

            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenSU...Leap_42_series

            suggests they had opensuse 10 to 13, then jumped to Leap 42.x series, 42.1, .2 and .3 and now they're back at 15.

            so should 41.1 have been 14.0, 41.2 been 14.1 and 41.3 been 14.2?

              The reason for the change of numbering is due to the fact that now Leap and Sle share 99% of the core, to avoid confusion it was decided to align the numbering with Sle. So we have Sle 15 and Leap 15.

                There is a packaged daily build.

                  Some community builds from the OBS (click on "show community packages" in that page) have latest kernel.

                    This repo has 4.16.2 (4.17 is still pre-release):

                    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...able/standard/

                    I am running 4.15.12 (on openSUSE Leap 42.3) that I updated from it, and it has indeed been stable.
