Does installing packages in testing enable testing repo as a whole?


The current kernel (5.14.17-301.fc35.x86_64) might be causing my fingerprint reader some problems.

I’d like to try the next one (kernel-5.14.18-300.fc35), currently in testing, by using this command:

If I do this, is it going to enable the “updates-testing” repo as a whole, or just installing the update I’d like?

Thanks in advance for your answer!

That just installs this one package. The --enablerepo option enables updates-testing only for this transaction.

You can see man dnf for more information on the various optionst that dnf accepts.


Thanks a lot!
