BD0F849008F7E40C8E7C93105BEDC98A0B7EA431 Kernels by Linville

This is the status page for my BD0F849008F7E40C8E7C93105BEDC98A0B7EA431 test kernels.

YUM Repository

The easiest way to use these kernels is to install the jwltest-release package.

jwltest-release-6-3.noarch.rpm

Once jwltest-release is installed, the kernels below can be installed with the following command:

yum --enablerepo=jwltest install kernel

Alternatively, download the RPMs manually.

Are these "official" Red Hat kernels?

Kernels available here are explicitly NOT official Red Hat kernels. These kernels are for testing and/or experimentation. There is absolutely no guarantee that any patches present in these kernels will actually be made available either upstream or as part of any official Red Hat kernel.

Why are they here?

For testing! Testing of patches by users helps to ensure a better and more stable kernel.

Your testing and feedback is greatly appreciated, desperately requested, and graciously accepted. Thanks in advance!

What patches do they contain?

The kernels above contain the following patches:
