yeah, and with the commit i added to that PR... i also realized... we arguably can't "officially release" until rpmfusion does maybe
M2
M2•3mo ago
Hmmm.....
bsherman
bsherman•3mo ago
they have 40 gated behind "development" this is what I'm talking about: https://github.com/ublue-os/main/blob/main/install.sh#L29-L33 i don't know how soon their mirrors will update that
M2
M2•3mo ago
Wow, that's a hack...

p5•3mo ago
The builds are successful after your version bump. Does that mean we're good?
bsherman
bsherman•3mo ago
Maybe! I am afk for several hours with family. I’ll check in on mirror status later tonight I would welcome similar PR for akmods/hwe repos. 😎 If they are all building we can have them staged and merge in concert when ready

Done! HWE: https://github.com/ublue-os/hwe/pull/240 AKMODS: https://github.com/ublue-os/akmods/pull/181 (doesn't need to wait until tomorrow)

"Even if you see successful builds, please wait for the announcement" we can probably say "Your system will update automatically or click this button" and then screenshot the icon

@M2 sorry i saw you were looking at the hackmd at the 3.0 announcement, but i moved it to discourse 😄
give me any feedback from what you saw though! 🫡 ill look now

Looks good for Aurora/Bluefin. @j0rge anything you want added in Bluefin?
j0rge
j0rge•3mo ago
Bluefin A-OK
tryhardsoccermomswag
Bazzite is good
j0rge
j0rge•3mo ago
how's that for the important section make it a little bit less ominous even though everyone has been able to rebase for weeks lol ok IMO just post this now and then do an announcement in the discord so people don't nag bsherman to death
1/4 Life
1/4 Life•3mo ago
Speaking of nagging him to death @bsherman you ok if I merge that CD kmod for now? We can definitely make it optional in the near future Want to try and get it in for F40
Noel
Noel•3mo ago
@nickname @j0rge thank you for the changes. @M2 are you good with the language for Aurora? Can post it after I put the kiddo to bed.

chore: Remove a bunch of no longer needed kmods. by KyleGospo · Pul...
These have either been upstreamed or are covered by the fsync kernel itself. Repo cleanup + paying akmod tax since I need a few more added here.
bsherman
bsherman•3mo ago
i was going to say "please, no" and then i saw you remove stuff 🙂 so... "why not?" Mostly, i feel bad that mulderje is helping us split akmods into distinct builds before merging his facetime kmod, but the CD kmod gets in 🙂 but I don't know how much work has been done i'm unaware of
1/4 Life
1/4 Life•3mo ago
cd mod failed to build so looking glass only for now pinged Rodoma92 about it
bsherman
bsherman•3mo ago
i see the error here, can fix the failed builds
1/4 Life
1/4 Life•3mo ago
so I am trading 7 kmod removals for 1 addition not bad!
bsherman
bsherman•3mo ago
i see you fixed 182 already

just did + force push

you know my stance on force push, right? 😉

I assume it's "don't do if you're getting reviews"

if anyone is collaborating, yeah,

1/4 Life
1/4 Life•3mo ago
@bsherman fyi, I'm gonna finish up that framework kmod that waffle was wafflin about so 7 for 3 😉
bsherman
bsherman•3mo ago
sigh are they all building clean at least?
1/4 Life
1/4 Life•3mo ago
that one makes sense as a "main" kmod though yes, I'm ensuring that
bsherman
bsherman•3mo ago
and we still have some that won't build on 6.8, i think
1/4 Life
1/4 Life•3mo ago
anyway, more than bazzite wants framework so of them that's the cleanest the two (3?) I've merged all build on 40 6.8 if they didn't I wouldn't
bsherman
bsherman•3mo ago
right, i'm with you on those... I mean we still have 3 from this list not building https://github.com/ublue-os/akmods/issues/144 gasket, and the 2 rtl118 drivers at least, didn't build last i checked
1/4 Life
1/4 Life•3mo ago
the rtl drivers are a menace and gasket I am OK removing, like I said that one was for you let's just pull it entirely for now, nobody's using it 7 for 3!
bsherman
bsherman•3mo ago
i welcome PRs to nuke 😉 lol, yeah, if we want it it just needs to be in ucore-kmods @Kyle Gospo office hours? @Kyle Gospo Rok CDEmu builds now https://github.com/ublue-os/akmods/pull/165 rok/CDemu is merged
bsherman
bsherman•3mo ago
I did a rebuild of the rtl188 stuff in copr, still no dice, filed a ticket to fix and we'll skip for F40 https://github.com/ublue-os/akmods/issues/185
j0rge
j0rge•3mo ago
streaming the builders in office hours I think that'd be a neat thing to do, wasn't that hard
bsherman
bsherman•3mo ago
@j0rge quick approve here? and then i'll force merge https://github.com/ublue-os/akmods/pull/181
j0rge
j0rge•3mo ago
we should get someone to stream and then just add some lofibeats haha check it out in office hours, that's neat
bsherman
bsherman•3mo ago
building akmods clean with all merged changes, and i think that's the last set for the night

I think I'll twitch stream this page from my other machine downstairs and then just leave it up all day

actually, great observation it means we can pinpoint when exactly we can release
bsherman

i still have some minor concern/question about if fedora repos will get an update we miss in our builds in the morning (or now) but it'll be minor
j0rge

yeah like, I still have work all day tomorrow it's not like I'll be watching builders all day

SELinux blocking libvirtd in Fedora 40
Seems like there is now a thread in Silverblue for this: The suggested workaround is: Doing a full system relabel may mitigate the problem (especially the inability to launch a VM at all). To do this, run the following from a console: sudo touch /.autorelabel and then restart the system. The entire filesystem will have its SELinux label...

Haven't ran into that on my 40 box....
Noel
Noel•3mo ago
did you do a rebase from 39 to 40? I'm going to test that now.
M2
M2•3mo ago
Yes I've been on 40 on my laptop since I did the Aurora rebase
Noel
Noel•3mo ago
@j0rge I'm going to upload the ISOs for Bluefin. @M2 I'm going to wait on Aurora due to the kernel skew issues we are dealing with there.
bsherman
bsherman•3mo ago
I use libvirtd every day ... rebased to 40 on a silverblue based image yesterday, haven't seen the libvirt bug mentioned above... odd.
j0rge
j0rge•3mo ago
ack, are these with updated tags? aka are we doing release testing nowish?
Noel
Noel•3mo ago
@M2 I did a PR for Bluefin to fixup some of the workflows. Aurora also needs to be bumped in the ISO workflow for building 40. https://github.com/ublue-os/bluefin/pull/1190
j0rge
j0rge•3mo ago
merge and go if you need to, acked

bsherman
bsherman•3mo ago
false alarm! this is as desired straight out of the ublue-os-akmods-addons RPM (my custom image install left it installed on accident, oops) but it again raises the question of why we are adding more 3rd party repos... i am mostly against that... last night's addition of this was a trade off with @Kyle Gospo removing several akmods 😉
1/4 Life
1/4 Life•3mo ago
actually shouldn't be, let me fix that
bsherman
bsherman•3mo ago
there's nothing to fix
1/4 Life
1/4 Life•3mo ago
the repo doesn't need to be default included I already have to add it in bazzite for the helper stuff it can be removed after the akmod generation
bsherman
bsherman•3mo ago
included or enabled?
1/4 Life
1/4 Life•3mo ago
either, if we want to pull it
bsherman
bsherman•3mo ago
my initial concern was default enabled, but that was false alarm... but yeah, i do agree the copr repo should be removed from akdmos-addons RPM and we can downgrade the RPM version/changelog ... pretend it didn't happen 😄
Noel
Noel•3mo ago
@j0rge unless you want to do additional testing, builds were successful for bluefin and ISOs are pushed up. I think it's safe to make the announcement.
j0rge
j0rge•3mo ago
yeah was gonna wait, today's more fedora's thing asked joseph and he thinks a 2 day party is better than 1 though I'm like the meme of that kid waiting tho might as well for bazzite at this point
Noel
Noel•3mo ago
Summary: Bazzite - Kernel is still building last I checked. Testing is required after that. Bluefin - Container Builds are Done. ISOs are Uploaded. Announcement is out. Aurora - Fedora 39 Container Builds are failing due to kernel skew. Fedora 40 is good to go. ISOs have not been uploaded. Base / Main Images - Container Builds are done. Announcement is out. @M2 @Niklas ⚡ Are you guys thinking to delay Aurora until tomorrow?
j0rge
j0rge•3mo ago
wait didn't you post the announcement?
M2

40 is on latest. 39 is broken

FYI - added a couple lines to the governance doc to clarify what images we build. Specifically current and one previous version. https://universal-blue.discourse.group/docs?topic=51
Universal Blue
Universal Blue Project Governance
Main Images When people refer to Universal Blue or “uBlue” they will likely mean the base images. These are described as “OCI base images of Fedora with batteries included”. This means: Daily, automatic ingestion of Fedora OSTree desktops. Silverblue, Kinoite, Vauxite, Sericea, and others. Note that these are unofficially built images, Fedora...
