Hi Aurel, Fedora maintains its own kernel and while it tries to follow
the kernel upstream, it has minor differences. They do have a mailing
list for fedora kernels that can be found at
should you have specific questions about it.

I must be honest with you that it's very unlikely that they will
help you if you simply drop ansible playbooks and security best
practices links. So far, the problem that you described is more related
to sysadmin stuff IMO.

My 2 cents for you to do would be:

1) use other mediums such as forums on the internet which a more focused
on that kind of thing.
2) try stuff locally, read up on docs of tools you are not familiar
with yet. With more details like errors I think you will more likely get
across someone that has faced similar problems and can point you to a
solution. So far your problem statement is a bit vague and it would be
hard for anyone willing to help to actually do so.

Good luck :-)
