Comment 1 Felix Miata 2004-02-07 17:48:48 EST
Problem continues in Fedora Core 1
Comment 2 Petr Rockai 2006-07-17 14:22:06 EDT
This bug is reported against old release of Red Hat Linux or Fedora Core 
that is no longer supported. Chances are that it has been already fixed in 
newer Fedora Core release. If you still experience the problem with 
current release of Fedora Core, please update the Version field (you may 
need to switch Product to Fedora Core first) in the bug report and put it 
back to NEW state.
Comment 3 Felix Miata 2006-07-17 15:36:12 EDT
This machine won't boot ATM. I'll have to try to fix it when I have time and
then confirm this was fixed by FC4, which is on it now.
Comment 4 Felix Miata 2006-07-18 13:41:05 EDT
I can not replicate the problem in FC4 on the machine this was filed against, so
it must have been fixed somewhere along the way from FC1 to FC4.
Comment 5 Petr Rockai 2006-07-18 13:45:41 EDT
Great, assuming fixed then.
