Description Zombie Ryushu 2017-03-13 18:39:47 MSK
The latest Kernel update to kernel 4.9.9. is posed as Mandatory by urpmi due to upgrading cpupower and kernel-headers. Is this intended?
Comment 1 Zombie Ryushu 2017-03-13 18:40:48 MSK
The hernel update seems to affect kernel-headers and cpupower.
Comment 2 Eugene Shatokhin 2017-03-14 11:31:03 MSK
kernel-headers maintain backward compatibility and are only used when building glibc and some other userspace stuff.

cpupower 4.9.x should also work OK with the older kernels.
Comment 3 Eugene Shatokhin 2017-03-14 11:32:27 MSK
You can continue using kernel 4.1.x as before.
Comment 4 Zombie Ryushu 2017-03-14 11:33:31 MSK
So this will not interfere with the building and install of DKMS Modules?

Yes, this will not interfere.
kernel-headers package is not used for that.

kernel-*devel packages are used when building DKMS modules as well as any other external kernel modules. kernel-*devel packages for several kernel versions can be installed at the same time if needed.
