Updating fedora kernel

18-May-2019 22:02

If it’s x86_64, then you’re running the 64-bit version; otherwise, you’re running the 32-bit version. You can try out release candidates if you’d like, but they are a lot less tested than the stable releases.

Stick with the stable kernel unless you are certain you need a release candidate version.

If all I want to do on my home machine is update the kernel by itself, all I need to do is run '' and then wait a while as the RPMs are installed and then DKMS rebuilds the kernel modules for Wire Guard and ZFS on Linux for me.

Your distribution constantly asks you to update your kernel....The absolute bottom of the list will probably contain some release candidate versions (which you can see by the “rc” in the name), but just above them should be the latest stable kernel (to make this easier to explain, at the time of writing the stable version was 4.1.2).
