And actually it did it on the Blackbird today when I tried to update it. So I think something regressed.

That’s oddly reassuring, in a way. Glad the regression isn’t somehow isolated to my machine.

On balance, what’s the most hassle-free way to install a 6.1 kernel to Fedora on Power9? I’ll accept steps to manually compile it, but am hoping to test my Radeon RX 6600 soon and it seems like every week we get another kernel 6.0.xx release.

Probably compile from the Fedora package itself: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Building_a_custom_kernel

I haven't done this recently, but I used to do it when I was hacking on KVM more.

The 6.1.0.x is now available on the main F37 dnf tree

My Fedora install has developed a wrinkle in the past couple of days. On running sudo dnf update, I receive the following message:

Transaction Summary
====================================================================================================
Skip  15 Packages

Packages unrelated to these install fine, but these are invariant and inflexible in failing to install. It appears that somehow I've entered dependency hell, as attempting to run sudo dnf update -- results in this:

Code: [Select]
Error:
 Problem: The operation would result in removing the following protected packages: gnome-shell, grub2-ppc64le, systemd-udev

It suggests using --skip-broken to skip uninstallable packages, but that makes no difference. I don't think I did anything novel, so maybe something scabby got pushed in a package that's throwing things off. Any suggestions? I can probably limp this along as-is until the April-ish release of Fedora 38...

Edit: manually installing systemd-251.7 went without a hitch. The changelog for 251.13-5 indicates some dependencies were changed to prevent an edge case, but I’m guessing it’s causing other issues as well. So it’s likely that I can just wait a few days and this problem will go away by itself.

I have had the same problem for a few days and came to the same conclusion, I am waiting  ;)

I finally found some time to fix the /usr/lib/kernel/install.d/99-grub-mkconfig.install script.
A bug in this script caused that after updating the kernel petitboot did not see the new kernel
and I had to do the kernel list update manually:

Code: [Select]
# grub2-mkconfig > /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

The problem is caused by this piece of script, lines 22-34:

Code: [Select]
    if test -e ${petitboot_path}; then
        read -r -d '' petitboot_version < ${petitboot_path}
        petitboot_version="$(echo ${petitboot_version//v})"
        major_version="$(echo ${petitboot_version} | cut -d . -f1)"
        minor_version="$(echo ${petitboot_version} | cut -d . -f2)"

        if test -z ${petitboot_version} || test ${major_version} -lt 1 || \
           test ${major_version} -eq 1 -a ${minor_version} -lt 8; then
            RUN_MKCONFIG=true
        fi
    else
        RUN_MKCONFIG=true
    fi

After the change to:

Code: [Select]
    if test -e ${petitboot_path}; then
        read -r -d '' petitboot_version < ${petitboot_path}
        petitboot_version="$(echo ${petitboot_version//v})"
        if test ${petitboot_version} = "0ed84c0-p94177c1"; then              #
            RUN_MKCONFIG=true                                                #  My Talos II petitboot version
        else                                                                 #
            major_version="$(echo ${petitboot_version} | cut -d . -f1)"
            minor_version="$(echo ${petitboot_version} | cut -d . -f2)"

            if test -z ${petitboot_version} || \
               test ${major_version} -lt 1 || \
               test ${major_version} -eq 1 -a ${minor_version} -lt 8; then
                RUN_MKCONFIG=true
            fi
        fi
    else
        RUN_MKCONFIG=true
    fi

The script started working as expected and new kernels appear to me in the selection list in petitboot.

The problem is it gets overwritten periodically.

It's not ideal but updating this script is rare, since the beginning of installing Fedora 37 it has not been updated once and the kernel several times ;)
