Unified Kernel and custom kernels

I just read that Fedora 38 will start to provide Unified Kernel support.
Here is the wiki entry:

As far as I understand, everything will be “packaged” into one package (kernel, initrd, …).

With this system, will it still be possible to install non unified kernels ? (like a real time kernel)

Best regards,


To be clear, this is a proposal. It has to be discussed on the mailing list for a week before it it sent to the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee to be approved or rejected.

Yes, it will. This proposal does not make UKI the default; it just makes it available. The wiki page you linked talks about focusing on virtual machines as a initial use case.


OK, thanks, I am breathing again :slight_smile:
