Hi, everyone. We're looking at pulling kernel-22.214.171.124-24.fc13
Fedora 13 Beta, quite late, because current Beta candidate builds
include kernel-126.96.36.199-19.fc13 which is known to include a severe bug
that breaks boot on systems with Broadcom wired ethernet adapters
supported by the b44 module.
I have been testing most of the f13 builds as they become available in
koji and haven't noticed any regressions. There was once case where
a couple of updates came in close succession and I updated before trying
out one of the kernels. I am not sure if that was -24 or not.
I am currently running 188.8.131.52-35 on 4 machines and haven't noticed any
regressions. That's not the same, but gives an indication that some of
the patches aren't causing problems.
However, -24 has other changes from -19, including to the nouveau
(NVIDIA graphics) and iwlwifi (Intel wifi) drivers. We really need as
many people as possible to test kernel -24, which you can get at
confirm that it works okay on your systems.
I have one machine that has an nv28 card in it and an attached monitor.
I haven't noticed a problem caused by the nouveau driver, but haven't
done much at the console on that machine this week.
