Subject: kernels


    There appears to be a lot of talk about kernel bugs. I heard that 
the stock F7 kernel has bugs and it is known as 2.6.21-1,3194 and in the 
updates it was changed to
2.6.21-1,3228. This makes me think both of these are the same identical 
kernel with some changes in the huge number of compiled in modules. This 
update is a change in the modules that are compiled in. With a lot of 
work you could compare the modules and discover what happened.

    For sure Red Hat could have done the update package. And they could 
have decided which modules to remove/add. Where can you read about all this?

Karl, 

   The kernel is evolving and changing everytime.  Old bugs are squashed and new ones are introduced.  The patches released fix certain bugs and the cycle continues.  Dave Jones is the specialist and has several people helping him out as well.  

http://www.codemonkey.org.uk/projects/fedora/
or
http://kernelslacker.livejournal.com/

will give you more information.  There is also a fedora-kernel-list that may/may not be in your best interests to join. 
There are several bugs for which you can see here

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/showdependencytree.cgi?id=184121


You can also compile your own kernel as well if you need to.

Regards,

Antonio
