I mean this bug that became a thing ever since we split up the
kernel into lots of subpackages. Anaconda/DNF will install the wrong
variant (like debug instead of regular) of any kernel subpackage
because they all provide (and rightfully so) the same name. It breaks
stuff as simple as having Wi-Fi in Fedora Workstation after
netinstall, or makes it so that you can't rely on the "kernel-devel"
requirement for dkms. It's a natural consequence of how our kernel
packaging works, and how yum and dnf cannot infer the correct default
flavor of kernel packages from the environment.
Oh, right, that one. Isn't it basically the same as
I haven't installed from the DVD in a while, but last I recall,
something about DVD installs prevents this from happening. It may very
well occur now with DVD installs, too.
The difference would just be in which of the kernel packages are
present on the DVD for it to install, I suppose.
