RE: install Fedora 9 on Toshiba Satellite A305-S6825



I have used several kernels where all but the first one have been the
results of yumex updates.  The first one that I downloaded and manually
installed was the latest kernel at the time.

The kernels that I know work are the following:

	2.6.26.5-45.fc9.i686
      2.6.26.6-79.fc9.i686
	2.6.27.5-37.fc9.i686

I have been running the last kernel listed on a couple of days and ran into
a problem with yumex failing forcing me to update the yumex release being
used manually using instructions from
http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=204203


Unfortunately, I do not remember what repo I accessed when downloading the
original kernel.  The ones that I normally use via yum and yumex are the
Fedora 9, Fedora 9 update, Livna for Fedora 9 and the two sets of rpmfusion
(free and nonfree) repos for new and updates.  Note that the software stored
on the Livna repos are moving to the rpmfusion repos.

For the kernels, I would recommend the Fedora 9 or Fedora 9 update repos.
The URL to these repos should be buried somewhere in your YUM configuration
files.

Good luck and let me know how it turns out.
