The tumblweed installation DVD will not recognize a NVME SSD. December's snapshots recognized the drive just fine. I would like to do a fresh install and the installer will not recognize the drive.
I did verify the integrity of the ISO, and tried a few other USB drives.
All the snap shots after late November recognizes the drive, and even Leap will recognize the drive.
So I firmly believe the issue has to deal with the 20160117 snap shot installer.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot the 20160117 snap shot dvd
2.Search for NVME drive
No drive found
Find the drive and install the OS

lsmod on a install leap kernel or previous tw show nvme loaded and active
I reaffect to Kernel (even it's happening during installation) this bug has nothing to do with yast2
Can you please provide the output of
> zgrep NVME /proc/config.gz
> find /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers -name nvme.ko
In kernel 4.4 the nvme driver was move from drivers/block into it's own directory and maybe something went wrong with the config or build there
In console at install time
zgrep NVME /proc/config.gz
find /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers -name nvme.ko
this one doesn't work, directly only
but even inside this one no nvme.ko exists.
It's missing in the installation image, indeed. installation-images/etc/module.list doesn't contain drivers/nvme/ but only drivers/block/.
The location of nvme driver was changed in 4.4 from drivers/block to its own subdirectory now.
Same thing is happening in the 20160126 snapshot.
The only thing that has changed is now it takes a really long time to recognize all the drives. (5 minutes or so)
And just like last time, Leap works fine, and past snapshots work fine. Oh and the MD5 checksum comes out clean.
The fixed package is still in QA, not released yet.
