I am a Linux veteran (RedHat 6) and I have always been loyal to community developments. Rocky Linux 9 is a real disaster to install. Having reached the end of what can be expected from a CentOS 8.x (i.e. nothing more), I wanted to privilege the community sphere. The version 9 doesn’t work, not even detecting the Base AppSream repository via the iso on my M.2 NVMe SSD mounted with Ventoy. The Checksum is n’t good. For that, I had to download version 8.6 and there everything is working and the installation is perfectly fine even with a manual partitioning ! You must have noticed that AlmaLinux is perfectly functional even in version 9.
It’s really useless to develop quickly a distribution (like the neighbor AlmaLinux very reactive and with a community essence less marked than yours) and that it is not even testable !!!
I wonder if I will not switch to AlmaLinux even if it is sponsored once a year but remains community in its decisions.
To make community versions requires even more requirement and rigor since one touches the very soul of Linux, it seems to me.

Would be good to actually explain your hardware underneath. No one else seems to have problems like you. To claim that the Rocky 9 doesn’t work is a bit much especially since the majority of other people don’t have issues - which means it’s something unique to you. I myself have used 8 and 9 without issues, including on a Raspberry PI.
Instead of making your baseless attacks which are unhelpful, why not actually provide useful information?
