I like the older releases keeping the older versions. I have to run the older version because of a network lockup which rawhide kernels exhibit.
kernel-2.6.23.14-107.fc8 works fine at .23
kernel-2.6.24-0.167.rc8.git4.fc9 introduces bugs in .24

I'd rather have newer programs and a stabilized kernel. The drivers that I need are available and work excellent before .24 introduced bugs. Openoffice.org for rawhide loads quicker and works without problems. Advancements in programs is more important to me than adding and deleting support for kernel level devices.

fc9 kernels hang at
1161 ?        D<     0:00 /sbin/modprobe

Whatever that is.
