On a CentOS 7.9 installation I have some troubles running newer CPUs, e.g Ryzen 5 5600G (with included graphics).
I concluded that it is the Kernel because it boots with certain versions, with kernel
5.4.219-1.el7.elrepo.x86_64 for example boots but I see this during boot:
kobject: can not set name properly! mce: Unable to init MCE device (rc: -22)
After that it boots OK, only problem I noticed is that text is very large on console screen, so it must be missing some drivers/packages.
I read that kernel 5.17 has some updates for AMD Ryzen CPUs and I am trying to install this one, but I don’t know how.
6.0.3-1.el7.elrepo.x86_64 (not booting) from
el-repo repositories, but I cannot find 5.17 there.
- How / from where can I install
5.17 kernelor how to know which one is good for this CPU ?
- Is it uncommon to try to install
5.17 kernelon CentOS 7 and I should move to CentOS 8/9 ?
- Are the above errors not serious and I should stick to
5.4.219-1.el7.elrepo.x86_64(only kernel that boots) ?
