Works on x86_64 server running squid in TPROXY mode. Works on ThinkPad T450s (x86_64). Works on an i686 VM, but I did switch the SCSI adapter from LSI (mptbase) to PVSCSI (vmw_pvscsi) with the assistance of ESX admins. Now, I won't claim 100% that this is what made a difference on this i686 VM, but I do see changes to mptbase driver in 4.7 that are not in 4.6, so a tentative "maybe". Or it was maybe just a dumb luck that it booted on first try...

BZ#1370061 Kernel 4.7.2-200 panics after boot
User Icon hreindl commented & provided feedback 4 years ago

@ urbenlegend: nobody cares for akmod here since it's NOT part of fedora and breakage for 3rd party kernel modules is expected when the minor version changes - so just wait for it to become stable and complain at rpmfusion if they don't manage their akmods timely (or just take care when buy hardware)

On my fedora core 24(64 bit), I upgraded to this kernel(4.7.2-201) from 4.6.7-300 and now the broadcom bcm4312 wifi module is not working on my Lenovo laptop. Earlier, it was working after doing "modprobe wl". Now it says "modprobe: FATAL: Module wl not found in directory /lib/modules/4.7.2-201.fc24.x86_64"

User Icon urbenlegend commented & provided feedback 4 years ago

@anonymous, you just need to get the updated akmod-wl package from rpmfusion. They just released it yesterday. Boot into an older kernel, do the update, then boot into newer kernel, do sudo akmods --force, and then reboot again.

User Icon anonymous commented & provided feedback 4 years ago

This kernel completely bricks my system. The moment I boots, it just freezes.

User Icon hreindl commented & provided feedback 4 years ago

"The moment I boots, it just freezes" is a worthless information - what is on the screen when it freezes - have you disabled "quiet" and "rhgb" to see what it says?

WHAT harwdare? some crap involved which needs out-of-tree kernel modules?

User Icon anonymous commented & provided feedback 4 years ago

Nothing is on the screen. It goes into complete brick mode. Nothing is happening, nothing shows up, no TTYs, no indication of anything.

This bug isn't related to your problem (newer cpu gen), but do you mean such behavior as no boot/kernel output at all?

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1353103

If so, a very early operation fails. Here are some options to debug these situations ("If You Get No Shell"):

https://freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/systemd/Debugging/

You may also check, if it's a matter of updated linux-firmware by downloading/installing an older version and recreating initrd:

dracut -f --kver 4.7.2-201.fc24.x86_64 (recreate initrd for 4.7.2-201)

User Icon gtwilliams commented & provided feedback 4 years ago

This update causes Dell XPS-13 laptop to oscillate brightness level continuously between 100% and whatever it's set to. The oscillation frequency is about once per second. The previous kernel (4.6.7-300) doesn't have this problem.

User Icon anonymous commented & provided feedback 4 years ago

On Maxdata with Quad core Intel Core i7-3612QM CPU and Intel HD Graphics 4000 it sets brightness level to maximum. By pressing Fn-F8 or Fn-F9 i can move brightness indicator, but not the brightness itself.
