Please try the 435 kernel and report

Comment 2 Don Hardaway 2004-06-19 13:08:37 UTC
Thats interesting. I just went to fedoras site and the latest
available is 427.  So, how can I test it?

Comment 3 Alan Cox 2004-06-19 13:24:22 UTC
Where are you looking -435 is most definitely there

Comment 5 Alan Cox 2004-06-19 18:06:03 UTC

As its an official errata not a development kernel

Comment 6 Don Hardaway 2004-06-19 23:07:25 UTC
i got 435 but am still having some kind of problem installing--it will
not install the initrd.img file so therefore grub does not show the
kernel.  I am getting a new laptop this week so will have to cease
testing on the older one.  I will report how it goes with my new dell
d800.  I sure wish the hardware makers would work with linux to get
the bugs out like they do with windoz.

I have the same problem. After I've upgraded
kernel-smp-2.6.6-1.435.i686.rpm to kernel-smp-2.6.7-1.494.2.2.i686.rpm
(it's dual PII machine so I use smp kernel) I've lost ability to
connect to hosts outside local network. I mean, connection was able to
open, but after receiving about 5kbytes (and it's always the same
amount of data) connection is dead (it's not closed but data cannot be
received anymore). No dmesg messages are thrown that could explain the
reason. At first I suspected ethernet card failure so I changed 3c59x
card to compaq's tlan card but it didn't hepl. Fortunately revert to
435 version did help. Updating to current
kernel-smp-2.6.8-1.521.i686.rpm also didn't help!
