$ uname -a
Linux fedora 4.13.16-200.fc26.x86_64 #1 SMP Mon Nov 27 18:19:47 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux



I tried:


dnf makecache
dnf clean all
dnf --refresh upgrade kernel kernel-modules-extra kernel-devel kernel-headers
dnf --refresh update kernel kernel-modules-extra kernel-devel kernel-headers



but dnf doesn't find kernel-4.13.16-202.fc26

Anyone is able upgrade to this latest kernel ?

dnf tells me it's in the updates-testing repo.


# dnf --enablerepo=updates-testing upgrade kernel*

Thank you,

("Stable" status was on https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/?packages=kernel , not "Testing")

Is it possible to tell what are the risks of using kernel from this repo ?

the risks? potential for stability issues since it is still going through testing. however if it's been marked stable without pending next to it, it should be on it's way to the local mirrors fairly soon for download from the normal update repository.

the newer 4.14 kernel is available from updates-testing for F26 instead now.

Thank you, it's ok for me if it doesn't mean risk of loss of saved files.
