Fedora Core 5 Test Update: kernel-2.6.18-1.2189.fc5



---------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Test Update Notification
FEDORA-2006-995
2006-09-25
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product     : Fedora Core 5
Name        : kernel
Version     : 2.6.18
Release     : 1.2189.fc5
Summary     : The Linux kernel (the core of the Linux operating system)
Description :
The kernel package contains the Linux kernel (vmlinuz), the core of any
Linux operating system.  The kernel handles the basic functions
of the operating system:  memory allocation, process allocation, device
input and output, etc.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This large update rebases the kernel to the latest stable
upstream release, 2.6.18, which fixes a huge number of bugs,
in over 6000 independant changes.

In the last few updates, some users upgrading from FC4->FC5
have reported that installing a kernel update has left their
systems unbootable. If you have been affected by this
problem please check you only have one version of
device-mapper installed

See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=207474
for further details.

Users of Xen, note that this update requires a new xen
userspace update, which will be following shortly.
