Works for me: all using the Mate Desktop Environment.
sirius: desktop 16GB Intel i7-3770 CPU desktop (SSD + 5 hard drives in RAID-6) real:10m8.698s user:4m36.888s sys:5m2.539s
sedna: laptop 8GB Intel i5-2520M CPU Lenovo T420 (SSD only) real:9m58.097s user:4m4.035s sys:4m55.810s
mercury: laptop 32GB AMD Ryzen 7 5700U with Radeon 5500 Graphics (SSD only) rea1:19m2.987s user:9m36.756s sys:7m38.748s // This used to take about 14 minutes!
*** I’m intensely curious as to the reason for why sedna seems to randomly fluctuate between short (normally under 11 minutes) & extremely long (100+ minutes) elapsed times for the performance test!
Works for me:
XPS 17 9700, Intel i9-10885H (16) @ 5.300GHz, Intel CometLake-H GT2 [UHD Graphics]
And, of topic, a thumbs up for @jforbes for his ongoing work which gives me the confidence to install these packages on my production system ;-)
Looks ok for me. Works on baremetal (non UEFI mode) AMD Ryzen5 3600, Mainboard MSI B450M Mortar Max with prop. nvidia driver (510.68.02) from rpmfusion.org (GTX980 card). Works with Gnome-Desktop (Xorg). Regression test passed.
One question: i saw that my initramfs file seems a bit bigger than with 5.17.x., someone else saw this?
$ ls -lh /boot/

Works for me.. It's been running for a few hours now with no issues noticed. The enabled Default and Performance tests pass OK.

@ibims FYI my initramfs are the same:

Default & performance tests pass (KVM)
Passes Fedora CoreOS CI and pipeline tests on QEMU/AWS/Azure/OpenStack.
This update has been pushed to testing.
This update can be pushed to stable now if the maintainer wishes
Working for me, and importantly fixes BZ#2097165. Regression tests passing.
Works for me.
Works for me. HP EliteBook 840 G3 Intel i5-6300U (4) @ 3.000GHz Intel Skylake GT2 [HD Graphics 520]

Works on i5 5200U (Geforce 920M and Intel 5200 graphics)
Microphone not working since kernel 5.17.7 and still not fixed. It only works if you block the session. Lenovo Lenovo ideapad 330-15IKB Intel® Core™ i5-8250U × 8
Default and performance regression tests on a Dell XPS 13 9350 laptop (i7-6560U CPU @ 2.20GHz × 4) and on two NUC6i5SYK (i5-6260U @ 1.80GHz × 4). Performance test logs show performance is similar to other recent kernels on all three devices. Have been running this on my personal laptop since yesterday without any problems. Looks good!
@uservikol if it is not working since 5.17.7, then it is not a regression in this update.

@jforbes I reported on 5.17.7 and it was ignored
@jforbes **I reported 5.17.7, .8, .9 .10 ... and bugzilla and is not marked regression, but generally functional is not
The bug was not ignored, and there were several updates to it, with the last being a report that it magically started working again. Either way, it is a known issue, not a new regression. By giving negative karma, you are saying that every bug fixed for other users or new hardware support should not be made available because your microphone is more important than anything that might be fixed for the next release. Negative karma is for new regressions, bugzilla is where existing issues are handled.
@jforbes what does it mean then Karma: Is the update generally functional?
I'm still waiting for it to be fixed but the bugzilla issues didn't have any feedback from any maintainer
@jforbes One possibility is to change "Karma: Is the update generally functional?" to "Karma: Should the update replace the current kernel?"
Works well for me on Lenovo ThinkPad P1 Gen 2
Semantics in wording, hard coded into bodhi and not something that is controlled per update. But think of it this way, there are literally hundreds of open kernel bugs at all times. Yes, I look at all of them, no I do not comment on them unless I have a specific question that needs answering. But if everyone with a bug gave negative karma whenever an update did not fix their particular issue, no one would ever get a kernel update again. However bodhi may word it, the question is directed towards new regressions compared to what is in stable at the time.
Here's my initramfs sizes. For some reason it jumped between the two 5.17 kernels and stayed about the same with 5.18.

@jforbes I agree with you. It's terrific that we get new kernels so quickly :)
In fact, I checked 3 of my machines with the same F36 kernels installed and all 3 are basically the same - the initramfs size jumped from 5.17.13 to 5.17.14 and then only increased slightly in 5.18.4.
@jforbes I agree with you too. Thank you and I will continue to wait for a solution to this problem.
This update has been pushed to stable.
