Fedora 31's release is imminent. This means that some time ago Fedora passed
the point where (F31 and later) i686 releases were still possible, doesn't it?
If so, could we please clean the kernel package's repository of all the things
that are only relevant for i686? Because that would make my plans for the
config generation  just a bit easier.
Two baremetal systems and one VM hang with kernel-5.5.0-1.fc32.x86_64
right after GRUB menu entry selection/timeout for this kernel. Black
screen, menu goes away, I see a white underscore, that's it. Doesn't
I put GRUB into debug mode and I can see the kernel file being loaded
block by block off the media, but oh man something is off with GRUB
because the text scroll is unbearably slow. So I just had to kill it.
Last working for me is kernel-5.5.0-0.rc6.git1.1.fc32.x86_64.
So vboxsf has finally landed upstream. I gave up getting it merged
directly under fs/vboxsf since despite some fs-devel folks saying
that it was as good as it is going to get (given the limitations
of the API exposed by the host) it seems that the fs subsys maintainers
did not have the time to take a look at it.
So I've send it to GKH for merging under drivers/staging instead
and somewhat to my surprise (not complaining) he send it in for
Since this upstream now; and despite being in staging has alread seen
multiple reviews, I would like to get this enabled for the Fedora 5.4
kernels so that shared-folders will just work for users running Fedora
as a VirtualBox guest.
So unless there are any objections I'm going to flip the
configs/fedora/generic/CONFIG_VBOXSF_FS file to m and enable this in rawhide
There are many kernel messages referring to this man page, which
doesn't appear to exist on Fedora. What needs to be done so a user can
just copy+paste this message into Terminal, and learn more about it?
