Thank you very much again! I will see how it works out tomorrow and report back.
I just wanted to say that this worked. However, the .iso created with the stable vanilla
kernel is about 76 MB is more than the one created with the custom Fedora distribution
Also, I can not get hibernate working with the vanilla kernel. I get the following:
Failed to hibernate: sleep verb not supported
I thought that the vanilla kernel enabled hibernate out of the box.
May I am wrong. Any pointers? (This may not be the right place to ask.)
Many thanks again!
