Fedora's Rawhide Kernel Adds In KDBUS Support, Ready For Testing
Lennart Poettering announced today that KDBUS is now in Rawhide. "Josh [Boyer] thankfully added it to the Rawhide kernel packages, and our systemd RPMs come with built-in support, too now. If you are running an up-to-date Rawhide system adding "kdbus=1" to your kernel command line is hence everything you need to run kdbus instead of dbus-daemon. (No additional RPMs need to be installed.) If you do, things should just work the same way as before, if we did everything right. By adding or dropping "kdbus=1" to/from the command line you can enable kdbus or revert back to dbus1 on each individual boot."
