I'm on fedora 26 gnome. I did exclude=kernel* in dnf.conf because kernel updates are breaking my wifi. I wanted to stay on kernel-4.13.5-200.fc26.x86_64 Yesterday, I installed updates through the dialog and went to sleep.

I wake up today and all I have is


Wifi is broken in 13.9 but luckily working in 13.10. I'm considering leaving fedora because what just happened is unethical, if wifi wasn't working in 13.10 I'd be spending hours trying to fix it and I didn't want it in the first place.

How does fedora update when shutting down?

  • Yes, Fedora 26 uses dnf. How is it unethical? – fpmurphy Nov 5 '17 at 15:56
  • @fpmurphy1 I excluded kernel updates in dnf, but when I shutdown it was updated, kernel updates break my pc. That's unethical – Lynob Nov 5 '17 at 16:04
