Independant of you running a custom kernel on your machine (hint, turn
off secure boot in your BIOS/UEFI in order to load an unsigned kernel
image, or add your own keys to the BIOS that you create yourself), what
is wrong with the tumbleweed kernel that is not working for you?  That
kernel should be very close to the upstream kernel.
