The current state of support for Intel new inst like AMX in Rocky Linux

Hi team,

Is the latest kenrel linux-4.18.0-372.26.1.el8_6 has fully supports Intel AMX? or
Which Rocky kernel version will fully support Intel AMX?
Could you share the current status?


What is AMX? What would it be used for?

It is a new instruction on Intel latest CPU, Advanced Matrix Extensions - Wikipedia

It’s supported in kernel 5.16 and higher. Therefore for Rocky 8 or Rocky 9 you can use elrepo-kernel and install kernel-ml package, which is kernel 6.x. So kernel less than 5.16 does not support it.
