    Mate-applets and kernel-4.15

    Kernel 4.15 is available in koji, but I'm not sure how to make it work with mate-applets. The only tidbit I found is this:
    Code:
    kernel.spec - rpms/kernel.git - kernel - Fedora
    pkgs.fedoraproject.org/cgit/rpms/kernel.git/tree/kernel.specProxy  Highlight
    Fri Jan 05 2018 Laura Abbott <labbott@redhat.com> - Remove kernel tools from
    kernel spec file * Fri Jan 05 2018 Laura Abbott <labbott@redhat.com> - Copy module linker script (rhbz 1531182) * Fri Jan 05 2018 Laura Abbott <labbott@ redhat.com> - 4.15.0-0.rc6.git2.1 - Linux v4.15-rc6-48-ge1915c8195b3 * Thu Jan 04 ...
    The problem with this is, mate-applets depends on kernel-tools-libs, so when I try to remove the old, unused kernel-tools and kernel-tools-libs, dnf insists on removing mate-applets. What package should this be reported against, mate-applets or mate-common?

    Thanks,

    Re: Mate-applets and kernel-4.15

    A little more research shows that the only dependency is for /usr/lib64/libcpupower.so.0 provided by kernel-tools-libs. I removed kernel-tools with no problems. I wonder if the kernel maintainers could add kernel-tools-libs back into the 4.15 kernels?

    Kernel-tools is now a separate package.
    https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/...ackageID=26062
    But f27 package is available only in updates-testing.
    Enabling the repo should help.

    hmm,
    kernel-tools-4.15.0-300.fc27 is in updates-testing pending.
    https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/upda...h=kernel-tools

    So we have to wait.

    Thanks for the heads up. I downloaded the new packages from koji and did the kernel update. Everything went normally, including the kernel module update for virtualbox.
