Updating kernel howto
322141-Dispay-issues-since-kernel-5-2-x-with-Ryzen-3400G-Fedora-30 I’ll just have to wait and see if the developers can solve this before Fedora31 is released, and keep using kernel version 5.0.x and 5.1.x until the upgrade end of this year.The bugs are known, so there is hope this problem will be solved: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/buglist.cgi?Many people think about updating kernel for the vulnerabilities that may not get fixed by updating the kernel.Kernel update is required only if, • You have installed newer hardware that wasn't previously supported.It is always recommended to have a boot disk in hand while proceeding with kernel upgrade as you may ended up with a non-bootable machine in case of any unsuccessful kernel update.Because the newer kernels ( all new versions since 5.2.x ) dont work, I’d like to be able to update the system without updating the kernel, and just stay with the stable kernel versions 5.1 and 5.0.Howto “$ sudo dnf update” without installing the recent not working unstable kernel version 5.2.9?I call it that way because the kernel is ‘tainted’ according to gnome-abrt, and that makes it impossible to report, on Red Hat Bugzilla there are already posts about this problem ( it seems they are overwhelmed ) Tested the same kernel 5.2 in another Linux on another computer: the same problem.
id=1742890 As far as I understand it (and I’m just a user, not a developer at all and know next to nothing about kernel development specifically), kernel is being constantly updated with new features, bug fixes, etc.With newer versions of drivers (kernel modules) as well. something that worked ok on previous kernels doesn’t work on a newer version.That’s exactly why (or is one of the reasons) Fedora keeps three kernels by default, so that you could boot to older working one when you have a problem with a newer one.Have to say, I haven’t verified it myself, but it looks workable/usable.A frequently asked question on the Linux Kernel Mailing List is how to apply a patch to the kernel or, more specifically, what base kernel a patch for one of the many trees/branches should be applied to. In addition to explaining how to apply and revert patches, a brief description of the different kernel trees (and examples of how to apply their specific patches) is also provided. To correctly apply a patch you need to know what base it was generated from and what new version the patch will change the source tree into.
