Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1010007
New Kernel Fails To Identify Hardware and Freezes System
Last modified: 2013-09-19 14:29:06 EDT
Description of problem:
Just upgraded to 3.11.1-200.fc19 and found no improvement whatsoever. The scanner does not work and software freezes up because of bad kernel support for hardware.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always and forever
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Turn on scanner
2. Boot system with latest kernel
3. Run Simple Scan
System froze and required hardware reset.
Kernel should have found the hardware, and it should not have let the system freeze.
This has been going on for a year and needs to be addressed, IMHO. If the kernel is not working correctly, then there will always remain a serious problem with the overall stability of the system. That just stands to reason. We cannot move forward with application issues until the basic system is stabilitzed. Everything hinges upon this in an operating system.
I respectfully request that more people look more seriously at the kernel issues before moving forward on another Fedora version.
