Works in normal use on laptop. Both default and performance kernel regression tests passed on:
(1) NUC6i5SYK, Intel® Core™ i5-6260U CPU @ 1.80GHz × 4, Mesa Intel® Iris(R) Graphics 540 (SKL GT3) and
(2) Dell XPS 13 9350, Intel® Core™ i7-6560U CPU @ 2.20GHz × 4, Mesa Intel® Iris(R) Graphics 540 (SKL GT3)

Works for me: all using the Mate Desktop Environment.

sirius: desktop 16GB Intel i7-3770 CPU desktop (SSD + 5 hard drives in RAID-6) real:10m18.667s user:4m36.396s sys:5m6.478s

sedna: laptop 8GB Intel i5-2520M CPU Lenovo T420 (SSD only) real:9m41.363s user:3m46.512s sys:4m48.671s

mercury: laptop 32GB AMD Ryzen 7 5700U with Radeon 5500 Graphics (SSD only) rea1:14m39.467s user:6m45.780s sys:5m52.828s

*** I’m intensely curious as to the reason for why sedna seems to randomly fluctuate between short (under 11 minutes) & extremely long (109+ minutes) elapsed times for the performance test!

I don't know what caused this issue, but I got hundreds of lines of scriptlet errors when upgrading to kernel-devel from this update:

Installing       : kernel-devel-5.16.8-200.fc35.x86_64                  13/27

(and thousands more lines like these)

Looks like they reference the wrong kernel version (5.16.5, should be 5.16.8?)

User Icon jforbes commented & provided feedback 8 months ago

Just a reminder "unfortunately still an issue" is not a reason for negative karma unless an update specifically says it fixes that bug. Yes, there are outstanding issues, and I am going through them as quickly as I can, but giving negative karma for what is not a new regression is like saying your bug is more important than every fix included in a kernel update, and no one should be allowed those fixes until your bug is fixed.

I thought karma is there to have those issues raised during testing and from 5.15 perspective and trying to upgrade I believe this qualifies as a regression. But if this is something we don't want to karma on I do apologise.

User Icon markec commented & provided feedback 8 months ago

And just to add this was in no way criticism on your work or it's pace. Getting those issues addressed is much appreciated!

User Icon jforbes commented & provided feedback 8 months ago

@markec It is for issues raised during testing which are a regression from the current release. As 5.16.7 is the current stable kernel for Fedora 34 and Fedora 35, a new regression from 5.16.7 to 5.16.8 needs to be considered, but there are a number of issues with 5.16.7, and 5.16.8 does fix some of those, so let's allow those users who do get fixes in 5.16.8 to actually get them, and continue working to fix the outstanding issues for a future update.

Kernel Regression passed. Ran on bare metal 3700X and RTX 2060. Suspend issue also fixed that came up in 5.16.6 and 5.16.7.

User Icon emptybrook commented & provided feedback 8 months ago

Wanted to add that I tested both the general and performance tests.

This update has been pushed to stable.
