I've completed a 2.6.13 kernel rebase, and pushed out a

get another rebase before EOL).

Please give this a try on your systems, and file any
bugs that you happen upon in bugzilla.

You can also find interim 'snapshot' builds at
http://people.redhat.com/davej/kernels/Fedora/FC4/
which may fix additional problems since the last updates-testing
release.

I'm hoping to get this pushed out fairly soon depending upon
the feedback I get from how well this kernel works out.

Thanks,

Does this purport to fix the ibm_acpi module bug?


Just installed on a T21. ibm_acpi seems to be fixed, loads fine (v0.8).
Also v0.11 works :)
[root purgatory acpi]# tail -3 /var/log/messages

Sep 24 14:03:10 purgatory kernel: ibm_acpi: http://ibm-acpi.sf.net/
Sep 24 14:03:10 purgatory kernel: ibm_acpi: dock device not present
[root purgatory acpi]# ls /proc/acpi/ibm/
bay   bluetooth   cmos  driver  fan     led    thermal  volume

[root purgatory acpi]#

Also ACPI seems to be fixed since the machine reboot AND shuts down properly. Maybe add to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=165819 ???

But ...
[root purgatory acx]# modprobe e100

There was another error about cardmgr but I didnt write it down and cant find anything in the logs now. I'll try and get it somehow. PCMCIA works fine though.

Hope all this helps.
