FC10 -> Rawhide yum upgrade report (with minor problems)



I just completed the FC10 to rawhide upgrade an hour ago
and it did complete successfully. This installation was
previously a FC9 that was upgraded to FC10 in the same way.
FC10 packages were updated prior to the rawhide upgrade.

Although in retrospect I should not have done that from
within a console window in X. At about 20% during the
update, fontconfig (I think it was atlest) segfaulted and
caused X to restart, leaving the yum update incomplete.

However, yum-complete-transaction did manage to finish the
update although it was incredibly slow.

I changed fstab to enable one of my ext3 filesystems to
be mounted using ext4, and that seems to work fine. I have
not converted the filesystem to enable remaining ext4 features.

All in all, I see this as a successful upgrade (though I would not
recommend the method to anyone who are not able to fix potential
errors that would occur).

Rawhide seems stable and fast from what I have seen so far, and I
look forward to the FC11 release.


Minor annoyances:
 -Keyboard settings have been reset to USA instead of NO
 -Sound theme was enabled


Some (new) messages from dmesg:
ALSA sound/pci/hda/hda_intel.c:1101: Too big adjustment 32
ALSA sound/pci/hda/hda_intel.c:1101: Too big adjustment 32
(.. repeated ~40 times)
hda-intel: IRQ timing workaround is activated for card #1. Suggest a
bigger bdl_pos_adj.


The kernel seems to think the mtrr is different than before, though
I do not know whether this is ok or not.
# cat /proc/mtrr 
reg00: base=0x000000000 (    0MB), size= 2048MB, count=1: write-back
reg01: base=0x080000000 ( 2048MB), size= 1024MB, count=1: write-back
reg02: base=0x0c0000000 ( 3072MB), size=  256MB, count=1: write-back
reg03: base=0x0cfe00000 ( 3326MB), size=    2MB, count=1: uncachable

Whereas I have 8GB of ram, and it previously had more entries. Will
this result in worse performance when utilizing memory above the first
~3GB?

from dmesg:
