Fetching Rawhide Kernel builds using koji

To fetch rawhide kernels from Koji (Fedora build system), this is what I do:

Install the group “RPM Development Tools” to get koji packages

$ yum groupinstall "RPM Development Tools" 

NOTE: If you’re using versions < Fedora 19, please do: yum groupinstall "Development Tools"

Find the latest kernel in Rawhide

$ koji latest-pkg rawhide kernel                                                                      
Build                                     Tag                   Built by
----------------------------------------  --------------------  ----------------
kernel-3.10.0-0.rc0.git26.1.fc20          f20                   jwboyer

Download the resultant kernel from the o/p of the above command.

$ koji download-build \
  --arch=x86_64 kernel-3.10.0-0.rc0.git23.1.fc20 

Finally, install it

$ yum localinstall *.rpm

  1. You can also use the Rawhide kernel nodebug repo, if you only want nodebug kernels:

    • I should have noted that yum groupinstall “RPM Development Tools” is only for Fedora 19 and above.

      If you’re using versions < Fedora 19, please do:

      $ yum groupinstall "Development Tools"
