Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:27:35 EST

no video updates, nothing in X, can't ssh in, can't get to text
consoles, pressing power button doesn't initiate any disk activity.

No problems at all with the 2133 kernel.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot the 2139 kernel

Will upload X config and lspci.
Willing to run any tests necessary.

Does it become stable again if you comment out the Load "dri" in your Xorg conf ?

In the last few updates, some users upgrading from FC4->FC5

systems unbootable. If you have been affected by this problem
please check you only have one version of device-mapper & lvm2
installed. See bug 207474 for further details.
If this bug is a problem preventing you from installing the
release this version is filed against, please see bug 169613.
