Thankfully, upstream has given me a patch, although they say their policy is
not to support -rc kernels.
Thx. Ideally you'd add those patches to the F9 and F10 packages as well
and apply them only when a .29 kernel is found -- then F9 and F10 users
that use akmods with self compiled or koji kenrels will be able to use
you kmod as well.
After the builds are successful, what are my next steps to get them
Nothing -- they'll automatically get pushed.
Is it anything like fedora? I couldn't find this info on
It seemed to stop at 'request a build'
