wfm: desktop 16GB Intel i7-3770 CPU, laptop 8GB Intel i5-2520M CPU Lenovo T420 - all using the Mate Desktop Environment (regression tests okay, apart from the laptop taking more than 10 times longer than for the desktop)

FYI, the bridge problem still hasn't been fixed in this release

https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=202235

The patch is merged in mainline so it should be in the next release

Word as intended on HP Envy x360 15 cp0xxx Ryzen 2500U. Only left unresolved upstream issues are the lack of driver for AMD Integrated Sensor Fusion HUB as found on AMD Raven Ridge #1651886 and minor ACPI traceback for HP laptops kernel#201981 indirectly impacting some Fn light status.

palemoon is still crashing

@boycottsystemd1 This wouldn't be a regression because you have been using the same comment for a while now. Do you have a bug on this? A quick search didn't find anything filed. Please open one, and stop giving negative karma, this is not a regression to the current stable kernel.

@jforbes No I don't have. Where should I file this bug ?

User Icon avsej commented & provided feedback 3 years ago

@jforbes, why does fedora delivers kernel with breaking changes in API to stable branch? This update has broken ZFS module, and now it does not compile.

@avsej External modules are not something that we can directly support. Whoever is packaging ZFS though has had plenty of time to test with the 4.20 kernels, they are built in rawhide almost daily from the time the merge window opens. In this case, ZFS upstream has released an updated module which does report to work with 4.20, you just need to update ZFS.
Fedora does not, and has not ever offered a kernel abi guarantee, it would be an enormous amount of work, and we don't have enough kernel engineers for it. RHEL does this, and has the army of kernel engineers to make it possible.
