Thanks!

Arch
You don't want this kernel to be introduced into this version of Fedora.
It has problems like locking up on boot at creating /dev/rtc exists and
also problems with the Cisco Wireless driver card.

You can get it from rawhide by updating mkinitrd and nash followed by
pulling in the kernel. In my experience the later version breaks things.

I'm running it, hand built, here, and cannot report either problem. I did have to do a hardware reset early this morning, my boot drive was reporting a tummy ache that has me worried about its health. This is the last of about 10 such instances that made the log, but since the reboot, its all kewl again:
=========

==========
and the new log starts after that, and is nominal now.

Smartd had been spamming the logs before that but reading the temps
wrong by doing a double C->F conversion, reporting the temp as >120C
when it wasn't even 95F according to a finger laid on it.  That drive
is in the bottom of the tower and runs 5F warmer than the other 2
which are in 3.5-5.25 adapters with builtin cooling fans.  I have
started a 'smartctl -t long /dev/sda' on it now for additional info.
The drive isn't that old. POH=27754.


ps axf shows the wireless card that is having problems. I'm currently running 2.6.24-2.fc9
