I recall a kernel before a udev update on F7 that stopped all the USB plugin memory to stop working. Then the udev update arrived and

This didn't cause the computer to not boot, but it does make you gun-shy.

Regarding your NVIDIA issue usually the people over at Livna [1] are
quite fast about pushing out a new RPM with a new kernel. When you do a
yum update and notice a new kernel make sure that a new kmod-nvidia is
in there too.

If you want to run a Linux distribution that has very little chance of
breaking with updates please take a look at Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Desktop or CentOS.

1: I am sure other RPM repositories are just as quick. I do not have
any experience with them though.

I know where I am and will be careful. A kernel update is not a real problem because you can keep using this old one. But some others can be a problem. I will not change this computer to another operating system, and I like it the way it is right now.
