Actually, I'm still working the kernel bug that broke the VESA driver
that we opened when the Dell 745 first shipped. I believe that
desktop gets EOLed in the next month or so. The Disk driver to SATA
get off of BIOS compatibility mode came two quarters into the
machine's life cycle. The RHEL 5 driver update to get rid of the
SATA timeouts on start-up won't ship till after the machine is gone
at this rate.
So, yes quarterly updates should, in theory solve the problem.
In practice, they are necessary, but not sufficient.
