About the kernel in Hyperscale

We try to follow the kernel build from CentOS Stream 9 as closely as possible.

Build Commands

For CBS you will need to be onboarded to the SIG.

From inside the fork of the kernel Hyperscale RPM sources repo:

# Local build with mock; You can skip these steps and use cbs directly
mock -r centos-stream-9-x86_64 -D '%dist .hsx.el9' --sources SOURCES --spec SPECS/*.spec

# Create src.rpm for CBS
rpmbuild --define "%_topdir $PWD" --define "%dist .hsx.el9" -bs SPECS/kernel.spec

# CBS scratch builds
cbs build --scratch hyperscale9s-packages-experimental-el9s <path to src.rpm>

Once the specfile changes are pushed you can do a real build:

# CBS builds for CentOS Stream 8
git checkout c8s-sig-hyperscale
cbs build hyperscale8s-packages-experimental-el8 "git+$(git rev-parse HEAD)"

# CBS builds for CentOS Stream 9
git checkout c9s-sig-hyperscale
cbs build hyperscale9s-packages-experimental-el9s "git+$(git rev-parse HEAD)"

# Tag it for testing
cbs tag-build hyperscale8s-packages-experimental-testing kernel-<version num>.hsx.el8
cbs tag-build hyperscale9s-packages-experimental-testing kernel-<version num>.hsx.el9

# Tag for release; This will let it go to the mirrors
cbs tag-build hyperscale8s-packages-experimental-release kernel-<version num>.hsx.el8
cbs tag-build hyperscale9s-packages-experimental-release kernel-<version num>.hsx.el9
