so here comes the "howto":
1.) open a console and become superuser. Change to the directory where the
downloaded kernel-*.rpm's from the download are.
2.) check which kernels are installed:
rpm -qa | grep "^kernel"
The result should look similar to this:
djunix:/home/src/kernel/Hamradio-addon # rpm -qa | grep "^kernel"
You can safely forget about the 28.44.1. The most recent one should be
If you have more kernel-* - files installed please let me know!
3.) now you can upgrade (still assuming that you are in the directory with the
rpm -Uhv kernel-default-4.12.14-lp22.214.171.124.x86_64.rpm
this will take a while, dracut will build a new initrd. Please reboot, this
ought to work smoothly (I very much hope though cannot guarantee!)
Then you should load the mkiss.ko - module by doing a modprobe mkiss as
superuser and you ought to be fine. You can find it in the directory
but you do not need to go there.
Hope everything runs fine! In case of _any_ deviation in the procedure
described above, _any_ error message please write an email. And, on top of
this, please retest my email address - I assume you accidentally made a typo
.... somewhere. I am not aware of one single person not being able to send
emails to me - but you :-(.
