Summary0018422: Centos 7 aarch74 has 5.10 kernel in repo
Descriptionhi there, it seems like that for whatever reason, the centos 7 aarch64 build now contains an 5.10 kernel in the updates repository. this used to be a 4.18 kernel...

when trying to build AMIĀ“s with what is currently in the repos, i get this error when kernel-core is installed:

      centos-chroot: /usr/lib/kernel/install.d/51-dracut-rescue.install: line 59: /boot/loader/entries/1f683fc1b22d45fa93962a3c26d88b68-0-rescue.conf: No such file or directory
      centos-chroot: warning: %posttrans(kernel-core-5.10.106-200.el7.aarch64) scriptlet failed, exit status 1
  ==> centos-chroot: Non-fatal POSTTRANS scriptlet failure in rpm package kernel-core-5.10.106-200.el7.aarch64

also, the resulting ami is unable to boot.

out build pipeline used to work just fine, until the 5.10 kernel entered the updated repo.

TagsNo tags attached.

FYI: i just blacklisted the 5.10 kernel packages via the excludes directive in the updates repo, and our build pipeline is working again

That Older kernel was a rebuild of the el8 kernel on el7 .. it no longer builds on el7. I have been troubleshooting try to get it to build, but it is not looking like it is going to work.

The 5.10 kernel is a LTS kernel and should be available until C7 EOL. Also, this should be the Power 9 and aarch64 but not ppc64le/ppc64 repo.

The reason this kernel was pushed is the other kernel (the 4.18.x one) is now missing important CVEs.
