The standard process for new kernels, and this has been the case for
_YEARS_ is that a new kernel will head to stable releases around the
.2 release of said stable kernel.

The 27 release went into freeze mid October, there is no way we'd ship
something that new on HW. It will come in the next couple of weeks.

I know fedora is supposed to pretend rhel is "just" downstream's problem
but I see a lot of "redhat.com" emails here and when you ask red hat
instructors and affiliated about rhel8 they just say "ask fedora".
Nevertheless, right now everyone's crystal ball is hinting at a rhel8
branched out of f27 (which may be nonsense), so the question of a
LTS kernel seems natural.

But what do I know?

My understanding / assumption is that while each new line of RHEL is
based off of a given Fedora release, Red Hat does make tweaks /
changes to suit the needs of what they offer.

Thus, if you are correct and the hypothetical RHEL 8 is based on F27
there is no reason Red Hat wouldn't choose to use the 4.14 kernel
regardless of what is in Fedora when they decide to branch.

Congratulations and nice work! Fedora 27 is based on Linux 4.13 Cornel.

4.14 for F27 maybe in the future.
Most impatient can rebuild it from rawhide srpm.

V> Most impatient can rebuild it from rawhide srpm.

It is basically never necessary to rebuild the rawhide kernels from
source. Kernels are broadly compatible between Fedora releases, at
least in one direction. In the vast majority of cases you can just
install and boot the kernel from a release one or two versions newer.

So don't worry too much about trying to run a "fc28" kernel on your F27
or F26 machine. You can always uninstall them. The only thing you have
to really be concerned about is instability when running development
kernels. (rc0 can be especially fun, but that's how the bugs get found
and fixed.)

I found that one, but it's the "vanilla" kernel, not the one with the
Fedora patches. But as was already mentioned, it wouldn't be really
useful as you can just take the kernel packages from a newer release anyway.

ok, I was afraid it has anything to do with the proprietary nvidia blob.
i'll be just patient then.
thank you very much.
