Elrepo no longer maintains kernel-lt 4.4.155 in it's archive

(Ryan D Chadwick) #1

I'm in the process of installing ECE on my first host.
I've seen a number of similar topics with the issue of the kernel version being incorrect.
The documentation very clearly states that kernel-lt 4.4.155 from elrepo is the preferred option (at least for RHEL).
However, the elrepo project has cycled kernel-lt 4.4.155 out of it's archive and is no longer generally available.
It's many mirrors are also missing this version of the kernel-lt rpm.

Are there any other distributions points or yum repositories that still host this version of kernel-lt available?

Hi, thanks for pointing out the epel archive is removing the kernel-lt.
I found a mirrow http://mirror.rc.usf.edu/compute_lock/elrepo/kernel/el7/x86_64/RPMS/ that has the kernel-lt-4.4.155

Thanks for the heads up.
I was able to successfully install the kernel from the above repository.
I did run into a boot problem after the install.
Something to do with reading old LVM cache data.
This RedHat article fixed the boot problem: https://access.redhat.com/solutions/3588831

I am glad you were able to solve your issue and thank you for sharing your LVM solution.
