Re: Latest Fedora Core 3 status: kernel testing needed

As of today, almost everything is frozen rock solid for FC3 - the only
changes that should be going in from this point are fixes for
showstopper(*) bugs, and kernel bug fixes.

Because a good amount of kernel work for FC3 happened after the FC3test3
release, the release of the final FC3 has been delayed to November 8. The
extra time will be used only to give extra attention to the kernel, and to
find any showstopper bugs in other parts of the distribution.

Please rigorously test kernel 2.6.9-1.640 from the development tree
(http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/development/). Use it! Try to break it! Find big problems with it! File bug reports! And
thanks for making sure that Fedora is as high quality as you want it to

Happy bug hunting,

(*) A showstopper bug is one that corrupts data storage or severly impacts the user's basic ability to install and use the system.

Bugzilla # 133064 is a kernel related bug that is a show stopper for me and anyone trying to print via networked LPD print servers such as the Netgear PS110. The system is unusable if I can't print. Kernel 639 has not solved this problem. According to the last comment in this bug report, it takes installing an _FC2_ kernel to make printing work. It actually worked up through kernel 2.6.8-1.526 that was one released in FC3T1. It has not worked since then.
