Linux kernel vanilla repositories for Fedora

This copr provides daily vanilla builds of Linux mainline, unless the merge window is open – that's the two weeks long time frame right after a new mainline release when the bulk of the changes (including all riskier ones!) for its successor are merged.

This is the fourth of six coprs allowing you to quickly, comfortably, and cleanly install vanilla kernels from different Linux series. The offered packages are built just like Fedora's kernels and perfect for both quick tests and regular day-to-day use.

Installation Instructions

Enable this copr like any other, e.g. by running sudo dnf copr enable @kernel-vanilla/mainline-wo-mergew. Afterwards update your system, as your package manager then will install the latest kernel from this copr. On commodity x86 systems you’ll also have to disable Secure Boot, as your firmware otherwise will likely refuse to boot kernels from this copr.

A page dedicated to the kernel vanilla copr repositories for Fedora Linux explains this in more detail. It also provides a lot of additional information. Among them the differences between the six coprs and why most of them include others as a runtime dependency – which is why some of the coprs will occasionally look empty or abandoned, when in fact everything is working as intended.
