RE: Broken Kernel since 2.6.15



I was able to get kernel-2.6.15-1.1833_FC4.i686.rpm to work.
I appear to be using dmraid, but it doesn't make it that far.
I did edit init and comment out the setquiet and it
loads sata_via.ko, but can't seem to find the disks.
But both the working kernel and newer kernels say sata_via.ko is version
1.1.
I did replace mkinitrd (the latest FC5 update is mkinitrd-5.0.32-2),
rebuild initrd and try again.
I have taken initrd apart and it looks fine, and I compared my
initrd from FC4 with the one from FC5 and they are pretty much the same.
init in FC4 had a couple of DM commands that the FC5 doesn't have.
sata_via.ko can't seem to find the disks and the other commands can't
find anything either.
Any suggestions on how to compare the 2.6.15-1.1833_FC4
and the 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5 kernels?
Can I get all the patches that go between and add them one at a time
and see when it breaks?

The "2.6.15" kernel shipped with FC5 is actually a 2.6.16-rc6-git3, which is

almost a 2.6.16, so as 2.6.16 didn't work for you, it's no wonder that one 
didn't either.

You'll probably have to track down an old FC4 kernel, or take the one FC4 
shipped with, and hope it's recent enough for FC5's userspace to work with
it.
