Linux kernel vanilla repositories for Fedora

This copr project provides daily vanilla builds of the latest mainline Linux kernel, but stays clear of the merge window – that's the time right after a new mainline release when the bulk of the changes (including all riskier ones) are merged for the next mainline release.

This is one of six repositories that allow you to quickly, comfortably, and cleanly install various Linux kernels. The offered packages are built just like Fedora's kernels are and perfect for both quick tests and regular day-to-day use.

Installation Instructions

Enable this copr repository like any other, e.g. by running sudo dnf copr enable @kernel-vanilla/mainline-wo-mergew. Afterwards update your system to let the package manager install the latest kernel packages from these repositories. Note, on commodity x86 systems you’ll need to disable Secure Boot, otherwise the firmware will not permit kernels from here to boot.

A dedicated page about the kernel vanilla repositories for Fedora Linux explained this and other aspects in more detail. It also describes the various kernel series these repositories provide and why some of them include others as a runtime dependency – which is why some of the repositories look unmaintained or abandoned, when in fact everything is fine and working as intended.
