Re: [K12OSN] New Kernel Issues!

Hi Eric,

Kernel version 2.6.17-1.2187_FC5 worked great! The newest version (2.6.18-1.2200.fc5) does not. I have read some forums and others are having the same problem. After initial boot a big X and the machine hangs. Switch back to the earlier kernel and everything is fine. Very odd. Any ideas anyone?

Looking through the bug reports, the only one that looked like it might be relevant relates to the SELinux networking code. The recommended fix is to boot with this parameter:

	selinux_compat_net=1


(at the Grub boot screen, select the "2.6.18-1.2200.fc5" kernel, hit the "e" key, select the "append...." line, hit the "e" key again, append the "selinux_compat_net=1", hit the return key, then hit the "b" key )


-Or- you can boot back up with the earlier kernel that was working for you and wait for the next update (which sounds like it will happen soon)
