As you know the 4.4 kernel is the current kernel.org
LTS kernel and it
is going to be the Leap 42.2 kernel and SLE 12 SP2 kernel.
Since Leap 42.x is likely to use LTS kernels going forward I thought
it would be good to have a Kernel:LTS project that people can use to
test out that kernel. And then update that project when the 2017 LTS
kernel is released by kernel.org
For testing purposes I thought both Tumbleweed and older Leap / 13.x
releases should have 4.4 kernel packages available.
All that to say:
I've got the Leap 42.2 Kernel in a Kernel:LTS tracking project. It
should get all the SLE 12 SP2 kernel patches/updates automatically.
I'm building for Tumbleweed, Leap 42.1, 13,2, and 13.1.
I'm planning to leave that there until the kernel team makes an
official Kernel:LTS project. (I don't have the OBS permissions to do
that, or I would have).
If anyone wants to test the Leap 42.2 kernel in advance without doing
a full Leap 42.2 install, please do. That's why I created the project.
Also if people want to build kernel modules against it, they can. My
desire is that this repo can allow non Leap 42.2 testers to contribute
to testing out the Leap 42.2 kernel over the next 5 months or so.
I suspect having the project promoted a Kernel:LTS project would
increase the likelyhood of kernel modules etc. being built against it.
