I posted several dmegs log to developers and realized that
uname -r output on rc-kernels are not representative.
Lets see nowadays example: linux59 package of Manjaro Linux.
is close to this
on all of rcX-family kernels, so it lasts about 2 months of using of newest kernel.
dmesg output is close to this:
Sep 30 11:06:52 kernel: Linux version 5.9.0-1-MANJARO (builduser@LEGION) (gcc (GCC) 10.2.0, GNU ld (GNU Binutils) 2.35) #1 SMP PREEMPT Sun Sep 27 22:02:13 UTC 2020
so also did not contain certain rcX version and git commit of installed and used kernel - did not contain the actual version of a RC-kernel package:
$ pacman -Qi linux59 Name : linux59 Version : 5.9rc7.d0927.ga1b8638-1 Description : The Linux59 kernel and modules Architecture : x86_64 URL : http://www.kernel.org/ Licenses : GPL2 Groups : None Provides : linux=5.9rc7.d0927.ga1b8638 VIRTUALBOX-GUEST-MODULES WIREGUARD-MODULE Depends On : coreutils linux-firmware kmod mkinitcpio>=27 Optional Deps : crda: to set the correct wireless channels of your country [installed] Required By : manjaro-system Optional For : None Conflicts With : None Replaces : None Installed Size : 150.92 MiB Packager : Helmut Stult <firstname.lastname@example.org> Build Date : Sun 27 Sep 2020 22:01:47 UTC Install Date : Wed 30 Sep 2020 12:43:17 UTC Install Reason : Explicitly installed Install Script : No Validated By : Signature
It is not the best idea to tell what kernel version do Manjaro user uses now leads to make additional queries on a system to figure out and actually to fix bad info report of typical dedicated instruments which was developed to provide authoritative solid answers.
Please let dedicated version utils and logs to provide exhaustive/exact/solid about version. Do not brake their behaviour.
If I see old logs I can’t realize which rc-kernel I was running earlier - all rcX-kernels are looks like
<major>.<minor>.0-1-MANJARO can’t determine which rcX was on run in prev boots: all ten RCs looks like one
0.1 for 2 months of its lifetime.
It’s not representative even for dedicated utils such as
uname -r and
Can this behaviour of broken functionality of typical utils running on newest (RC-family) kernels will be planned to be fixed to provide actual solid full information about kernel version?
