Regression tests pass, general usage works, seems like a solid update. Hopefully all Radeon power management fixes will land soon in 5.15.X

sometimes i have to double-post the comments. It seems that sometimes bodhi does not accept the first try...

User Icon bretth commented & provided feedback 2 months ago

same problem. for me it: 1) throws an error 2) appears not to update this page but the result is there if you kill the tab and come back in 3) running datagrepper on bodhi.update.comment shows no result

been happening for about a week I'd say

Actually, given https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=215137, which I can confirm on both of my machines with SSD drives, this should probably not go to stable. I do not see reports of corruption or data loss in that bug, but it seems it upset a few folks.

Works great on Lenovo T480! LGTM! =)

Regression testing OK on Dell Precision T5610 2 x Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2603 v2 @ 1.80GHz (8 cores total) however I think https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=215137 is a bit scary.

It looks good, but laptop heats up more with this kernel for no apparent reason. Asus Zephyrus G14 2021 AMD® Ryzen 7 5800hs NVIDIA Corporation GA107M [GeForce RTX 3050 Ti Mobile]

The power profiles just started to fully work (performance profile is present now) with 5.15.x updates.

Can I get someone to please post the kernel headers for this update? VirtualBox requires it to update to the latest VB environment.

User Icon jforbes commented & provided feedback 2 months ago

kernel-headers are not required for Fedora, other distros name what we call kernel-devel as kernel-headers. See http://thorstenl.blogspot.com/2021/01/package-names-can-be-false-friends-too.html

kernel-headers is not build specific, and rarely gets updated in a kernel-series. It is used to build userspace programs. Kernel-devel is built with every kernel, must be version specific, and is used to build kernel modules.
