In Only Three Days, New Linux Kernel Source Commits Run Live on Fedora Rawhide!
Have you seen how and when new Linux kernel source commits appear in your distro and run on your server?
Shown below is
uname -r command line terminal output telling us the name and the release of the kernel which currently is running on our Fedora Rawhide install. Note the Git short hash, "4f9e7fa".
The screenshots following the
uname -r output show the Fedora build and the Linux kernel source commit history. The Fedora build is on Koji, the Fedora build system. The Linux kernel commit history is shown on Github.
On the Koji screenshot, the identical short hash, "4f9e7fa", appears on the "Information for build" line at the top, and again, a few lines down, in the "Release" line.
On the Git screenshot, "4f9e7fa" appears again, and is shown highlighted, towards the bottom.
uname -r output, the Git commit history, and the Koji history, taken together, show that the Linux kernel, as built by Koji, is running on our server only three days following the commit.

Here's on Koji.
And here's on Github.
I hope everyone gets the servers they want!
