Description Sergio Monteiro Basto 2017-11-22 23:46:55 UTC
Created attachment 1357918 [details]

Description of problem:
akmods-shutdown should use --force , should try build one time if if fails , should not try build every reboot one thing that we already know that will fail 

but remove --force  doesn't not needed if akmods --kernels $kernel , because --kernel option force --force , which is not logic by previous patch .

I may commit these patches , just need some approval by you . 


Comment 3 Sergio Monteiro Basto 2017-11-25 22:22:21 UTC
Since nobody said nothing I presume that I can go forward , so I will commit these patches shortly

Comment 4 Nicolas Chauvet (kwizart) 2017-11-26 07:28:24 UTC
Sorry, but one week of review is a minimal for asking feedback.
The first one is acceptable, but the second one not.

As I said in another review, there is no reason to force anything by default, so the second one is good for the long term, but I expect it's hiding something.

Please don't push any commit right now as theses patches would solve nothing in the current situation and there is other work on-going (secure-boot). akmod-shutdown isn't enabled anyway.

Comment 5 Sergio Monteiro Basto 2017-11-26 11:35:36 UTC
I enable  akmod-shutdown in all my systems . 

I don't understand why akmods --kernels $kernel is always add --force . 

is not coherent , neither first patch have any effect .

Comment 6 Sergio Monteiro Basto 2017-11-26 12:57:43 UTC
> but the second one not.

the second patch is also about remove one hard coded --force !
