I just fixed this (in a slightly different way) in FC4/rawhide. Tomorrows
2.6.11-1.37_FC3 kernel will be the last 2.6.11 update for FC3, before I backport
the FC4 kernel (containing this fix) to FC3.
Hopefully I'll get a 2.6.12 kernel out for FC3 pretty soon.
thanks for the fix - i updated the upstream patches too, at
An update has been released for Fedora Core 3 (kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3) which
may contain a fix for your problem. Please update to this new kernel, and
report whether or not it fixes your problem.
If you have updated to Fedora Core 4 since this bug was opened, and the problem
still occurs with the latest updates for that release, please change the version
field of this bug to 'fc4'.
I'm running FC4 and it seems that with 2.6.13-1.1532_FC4 still has this bug and
the latest kernel-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 and kernel-2.6.14-1.1637_FC4 do not have TUX
support built in.
