Revision as of 20:33, 16 November 2012

The rawhide-kernel-nodebug repository is a yum repository containing the latest rawhide kernel built with debug turned off. This allows testers to run the most recent rawhide snapshot and test on systems where performance is a bit more critical. New kernels are built pretty much daily, and only the newest kernel is kept in the repository. Any issues found in these kernels should be filed in bugzilla against the rawhide kernel.

Enabling the rawhide kernel nodebug repository

$> cd /etc/yum.repos.d/
$> wget http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/rawhide-kernel-nodebug/fedora-rawhide-kernel-nodebug.repo
$> yum update

Caveats

  • Will not "just work" with secure boot. (Because these kernels are built as scratch builds in koji, they don't get to run on the signing builders, so they don't get signed, so the shim will not run them without human interaction.)
