Just a note that the kernel build in F12 was updated over the weekend,
from 56 (which shipped in beta) to 96. This has quite a few changes
queued up, so if all F12 testers can please reboot and make sure the new
kernel works, that'd be great.

96 is old news now, but I did run it for a bit. The kernels starting on Friday
seem to help with some crashes I had been having that I suspected of being
KMS / ATI related. The 97 kernel seems to be working well as well.

One odd thing I have been seeing lately is a timeout while trying to
detect one of my two disks. Things work OK afterwards, but I didn't used
to see those messages. Usually it is ATA3 that gets the warning, but I think
I also got it for ATA4 a couple of times. The disks are old, so it could
be a change in the status of the hardware rather than the kernel.

For the 96 kernel and my RV630 graphics and xorg-x11-server-utils-7.4-13.fc12.x86_64 I still have to user pcieasm=off.

For the 97 kernel, pcieasm=off no longer works and I have to use nomodeset to get to a desktop.

Which bz covers this (these?) issue(s)? There seems to be several speaking to ati and nvidia and kms sometimes all on the same bz.
