upgrade fedora kernel without compiling

i hate compiling. even that gentoo, archlinux and freebsd makes it really very easy.
however easy it gets, i still hate compiling...

i got very recent laptop which have intermittent lan and wifi connection with default kernel.

this one-line is all it takes to upgrade fedora kernel without compiling:

su -c 'yum --enablerepo=rawhide update kernel*'

that's all it.
your kernel will be upgrade to the latest kernel from rawhide (fedora testing)

that fix my intermittent network connection.
