Has anyone encountered the following situation? I’m not sure where to report a bug, as the bug might not be ELRepo’s after all.
- I have [elrepo-kernel] enabled, because I need
- I only have

- I also do not have anything

kernel-ml-6.6.2build of 20-Nov-2023, now
gnome-software, they all want me to “update/upgrade” this:

kernel-ml-toolsas a “replacement” for
kernel-tools; it’s only with this build of

kernel, so where’s the bug?
