Hi, I have a dell xps 9365 it was working fine with the kernel 4.16, after I updated the kernel 4.17.2 it gave me an error

nvmem registration failed

, i used the old kernel till the 4.17.3 release as I read someone solved the issue with the update. The machine booted a couple of time fine then now goes in emergency mode in an endless loop.

Is it there anyone that has solved this issue? also could you tell me how I can keep the 4.16 kernel in the future? I am afraid that if i do another update it won't be in grub anymore. thank you in advance!

no answer, just a couple of thoughts:

  • nvmem registration failed is unrelated to your issue.

  • Increase the number of kernels that your system keeps on updating with the parameter installonly_limit=x in /etc/dnf/dnf.conf, or exclude the package kernel from updates: excludepkgs=kernel* in that same config file (or you run dnf update with the option --excludepkgs=kernel*

Finally, I think I have seen this problem in a question here already, just can't find it right now.

thanks florian! I will try to increase the number of kernel hoping that the issue is solved one day.
