So actually I *do* need to recompile my kernel (given that I only use
the stock kernels from Fedora Core and Fedora Core Updates Released) to
use a custom DSDT? I'm not sure if I understood you correctly. You're
saying that it is now possible to use a custom DSDT without compiling it
into the kernel, but the stock FC kernels have not been compiled in such
a way to take advantage of this. In which case, has anyone opened a bug
report asking that they enable this option?
