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



I've installed kernel-smp-2.6.18-1.2189.fc5 in a Dell Latitude D820.
System starts up fine and I was able to build kernel modules for
nvidia and ipw3945 (after patching version 1.0.12 as recommended in
their development mailing list).  So it runs!

Why the heck does it beep so much?  Now I get audible beeps when gdm
starts, all usage of tab. Inside X, I can "xset b off" to make it
stop, but how to stop in general?

Suspend does not work.  g-p-m simply says "suspend failed" and I can't
see why.   Running /usr/sbin/pm-suspend in the terminal does not give
any errors.  I don't know why because the gnome-power-manager I'm
running is the development version from Richard Huges's Utopia server,
which was state-of-the-art for FC5 about 2 months ago but now it is no
longer being updated (preparation for FC6).  I wonder if I should not
un-install those rpms and re-install the ones from FC5 updates?

These are the relevant rpms from that server, and I'm a little worried
about how to back them out and still have a running computer:
