So, technically this is a regression reintroducing bug #1851668

This pulls in new dependencies (flatpak, ostree-libs) which it did have before (see below). Also, it cannot be erased due to the dependency. Why are flatpak and ostree forced upon us?

The real issue is that ghostscript does not require the exact version of jbig2dec that it depends on. So, ghostscript needs a rebuild and an update for the requires.


Unfortunately, this update has been pushed to stable for F29 before even submitting an update for F30 at all. It breaks system-upgrade from F29 to F30 completely!

Since the previous version is not in updates any more users are forced to downgrade all the way down to the F29 base version, which is no good version for the dist-upgrade.



Also, this solves for me (ACPI BAT/CHR events on older Samsung Ultrabooks).


If you are bitten by the dracut bug head over to the dracut update

Changing karma to +1 +1 here.

BZ#1676357 dracut-install[7836]: segfault at 0 ip 0000562144297444 sp 00007ffdb5ad3588 error 4 in dracut-install

While the kernel installs and boots there is a reproducible segfault for dracut-install ( with the current dracut. It s not clear yet whether this a dracut issue or a kernel 5.0 issue. So +1 one for the working update, -1 for the segfault during dnf update.

Maybe it's worth amending this with "Fix CVE-2019-8912 (rhbz 1678685 1678686)" (bb99dec73, current tip of f29 in dist-git)?

(addition to the previous comment: 4.19.3 worked as well, the 4.19. kernel before that did not)


Fedora 4.19 kernels before 4.19.5 and after show an acpi crash for me on an old HP/compaq 6715b laptop with an AMD Turion. Same crash with 4.19.8, whereas 4.19.5 did work. Low and behold: the koji build ("atomacpi") works, the kernel boots as usual. acpitool -c says:

This package has been pushed to F28 but not F29. The dependencies are messed up but I'm not sure whether the problem is in -3 or in the earlier versions. Rebuilding my package impressive which depends on python2-pygame (unversioned) and reinstalling helped. Maybe it is as simple as a missing explicit Provides: python2-pygame for the subpackage.

In any case, having this in F28 forces maintainers of depending packages to bump their F28 versions for a fix - and not pushing it to F29 is not quite what we are supposed to do.



Mitigation: PTE Inversion; VMX: conditional cache flushes, SMT vulnerable

This is without extra smt kernel parameters or sysfs fiddling



The way the kernel folks handled retpoline (gcc build in extra koji buildroot) was the best they could do to get those safer kernels out quickly and still have reproducible builds.

koji buildroots are available for everyone to do their scratch builds with. There's also a gcc-retpoline copr if you want to do builds there, using a retpoline gcc.
