Announcing the release of the kernel-lt-4.4.81-1.el7.elrepo package
set into the EL7 elrepo-kernel repository:
The upstream changelog:
Note that due to upstream source code defects the perf and python-perf
packages have not been built.
The following files are currently synchronising to our mirror sites:
We provide these kernels for hardware testing in an effort to identify
new/updated drivers which can then be targeted for backporting as kmod
packages. Meanwhile, these kernels may provide interim relief to
people with non-functional hardware. We stress that we consider such
kernels as a last resort for those who are unable to get their
hardware working using the RHEL-7 kernel with supplementary kmod
These packages are provided "As-Is" with no implied warranty or
support. Using the kernel-lt may expose your system to security,
performance and/or data corruption issues. Since timely updates may
not be available from the ELRepo Project, the end user has the
ultimate responsibility for deciding whether to continue using the
kernel-lt packages in regular service.
The packages are intentionally named kernel-lt so as not to conflict
with the RHEL-7 kernels and, as such, they may be installed and
updated alongside the regular kernel. The kernel configuration is
based upon a default RHEL-7 configuration with added functionality
enabled as appropriate.
If a bug is found when using these kernels, the end user is encouraged
to report it upstream to the Linux Kernel Bug Tracker  and, for our
reference, to the ELRepo bug tracker . By taking such action, the
reporter will be assisting the kernel developers, Red Hat and the Open
Source Community as a whole.
The ELRepo Team.
