I am very hapy with Fedora. A couple years ago I evaluated mutiple

to find a differnent way of managing my Kernel updates. My system uses
kernel modules not included in the Fedora distribution I like to be
selective on the kerenel upgrades. I will avoid using the L word,
that is not what I need. CentOS is a server focused system and Ubuntu
Ubuntu neither work for me. For example my system is on its second
version in 5 days . In the last year my system has had 30 kernel
What would it take for me to maintain a second Kernel that updates
or even mothly would be an improvement?
These year is my 20th year using linux, I understand Fedora is a
platform that changes. I do not want to change destributions, just add
stablity to my updates.
You might want to
1. Disable automatic updates.
2. run updates manually in a terminal; and once you see the list of
packages to be updated,
you will be prompted if that is OK. Do not answer yes to the update
Instead, in another terminal, you can run dnf update a list of
packages you select from the
update list in the previous mentioned terminal.
Another suggestion is to run Centos 7.3, and see if it behaves better
for you as far as updates are concerned.
