I am reading a lot of Docker guides where the will often use some Ubuntu base image and in the Dockerfile directly or in a bash script that gets copy to container and run on start, it has things like 'apt-get upgrade'
As i understand it, the container still uses the hosts kernel. So what happens when the apt-get upgrade includes a kernel upgrade?
Short question is: should we always do a yum update --exclude=kernel-* to do an update in Fedora?
I was a bit surprised that when I got a new Fedora machine at work (it used to be Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL)), the first time it started up, it asked me to do an update, and I naturally said yes, and for anything it asked, I just used the default answer (usually replying "yes" by pressing ENTER)
after a security update to kernel 220.127.116.11 (from 18.104.22.168) my system does not boot anymore. "Cannot find volume group xxx". I'm using disks with md raid 1 and a root/swap partition on lvm. /boot is a md device.
System boot fails, when the kernel is not able to find the volgrp anymore.
