fps drops, driver problems, plymouth broke in 4.17.4, cmos rtc bug in 4.17.2 fps regression in 4.17.3 and 4.17.4. Are there bug reports, or should I post them?

Update: 4.17.5, broke plymouth, and low fps still. Do i file bug on redhat or at

score in any of the 17.3-5 is around 4700 or lower. Obviously nothing has changed on the hardware, so the only assumption is that kernel 4.17 is broken.

Check out 4.17.6:

Plymouth still broke, fps low and just noticed, from 17.3-6 that a watchdog0 is running for over 4000 seconds, when I go to shutdown after about an hour. tried boot logs for watchdog0, no luck, any suggestions.

Report bugs on bugzilla or comment existing ones, just make them detailed, without logs and hardware specs this question is just a complaint or rant.

I would go ahead and file a bug report on Bugzilla if it doesn't work as expected. I searched around and couldn't find any issues such that you described them.

I have found an issue with NICs and webcams, but nothing about Plymouth or performance issues. Here are links to those bug reports:

You could file them in both places, but I'd say start with RHBugzilla.
