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

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
which may fix additional problems since the last updates-testing

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



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: dock device not present

bay   bluetooth   cmos  driver  fan     led    thermal  volume

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.
