No. I've found it better to have only one active at a time. I believe that freshrpms
so your kernel modules are automatically recompiled as needed whilst livna
just makes a new rpm available.
can be more more responsive but less flexible. That's because dkms
, once the service is started, will attempt to install all
the modules mentioned in it's config file, even if that's not desirable or, as I've had occasion to find out, the modules installed conflict with each other and prevent your system from working as expected.
On the other hand, if you use livna
, you should install the fedorakmod
yum plug-in so the livna
kernel modules will be kept in sync with kernel changes. Until the kmod kernel system is removed from the Fedora distributions. (Last I saw, the decision to remove it had been made, but not scheduled.)
