Kernel upgrades

I just upgraded my machine from F29 to F30. Now, whenever I install a new kernel, the new kernel does not automatically become the default. In other words, when I reboot, the previous kernel is still chosen by grub2.

I can manually choose the new kernel in the grub2 menu, at which point it _does_ become the new default. I don't wind up at the "grub>" prompt, so I think grub2 itself is fine. It is just that the grubenv is not updated when the new kernel is installed.

The machine has UEFI, but the system boots using the legacy BIOS compatibility layer.

Rawhide issue with python3-wxpython4

The KiCad package uses python3-wxpython4 - I'm one of the package maintainers. KiCad is building correctly on Fedora 30, but my rawhide builds are failing with the following error:

BUILDSTDERR: - nothing provides python3-sip-api(12)(x86-64) = 12.5 needed by python3-wxpython4-4.0.4-2.fc30.x86_64

It looks like the sip package was upgraded to 12.6 recently (March 21, 2019).

New guy - with a question

I'm new to this list, but I have been building packages for KiCad for a little while now. I have a question about rawhide; is it in a freeze right now?

The reason I ask is that I built kicad-5.1.0-0.1.rc2.fc31 on koji back on March 2, but I don't see it (or any other fc31) packages on dl.fedoraproject.org in the rawhide area.
