I've reverted to an older kernel after discovering that OpenZFS does not have currently have DKMS packages for the latest 5.12 release of Fedora 33 after a
But while removing packages from the newer kernel I found that only
5.12.9-200 was still installed (
I then realized that the packages listed by Koji for the packages I'd selected for 5.11 did not include
kernel-headers and I had neglected to revert this before rebuilding ZFS.
Everything appears to be running correctly but have I inadvertently put my system or ZFS into a dangerously undefined state as a result?
zfs all depend on
kernel headers and I am most worried about
I plan to install the correct kernel headers and rebuild these packages but wanted to ask here first for advice.
Also, why is
kernel-headers not listed on the Koji page for the selected kernel? Because headers do not always track with the actual kernel release, I had to manually locate the last release for 5.11 which was 5.11.20-200. I would have preferred if this information was linked directly by Koji with the other kernel packages as tracking it manually is subject to error.
