You can install 2.6.27 from rawhide, currently at 2.6.27-3, and it will work (proviso below). It will also pull in a new mkinitrd and a new package, plymouth. Trying to build it FOR F9 from the SRPM just resulted in the same dependencies on mkinitrd and plymouth so it was not worth the effort. There is, however, a potential for a couple of gotchas. Several people have reported failures to boot. This seems to be due to two issues, one involving ext4 (renamed from ext4dev) and the other involving a race condition between lvm and certain scsi device drivers, most notably the VMware emulated scsi devices. The later problem, which I've been involved in debugging, is in this bugzilla report and thread: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=466071 The bug impacts both F9 and F10 with the 2.6.27 kernels. > BTW, does the 2.6.27 kernel need a newer version of udev?
