Can't remember it rigth now (except my AWE 64 ISA sound board won't work
with the fc2 2.6.10 kernel...), but there has been others too.

I acctually *am* on the test list and has been for ½ a year, but i more
or less thought this was a list for the test releases leading up to the
release of a stable version - and as a generally "low traffic/high clue"
version of the users list when not used for this purpose. Seems like i
was wrong.

What about informing people on this, having a system where developers
from RH (core) and non-RH (extras) can ask for Q&A? A simpler system
might also be a bettetr system IMO.
