I know what causes the messages. Unfortunately the next kernel is already built
so the fix will have to wait a week or so.

Fix is here, for the record:

Don't understand the bit about the next kernel already being built. I only see
2.6.20-1.2925.fc6 in updates in no kernels in testing. Did I miss something?
Comment 4 Chuck Ebbert 2007-03-19 16:26:05 EDT
kernel 2933 is built and already on its way to testing.
Comment 5 Bojan Smojver 2007-03-19 16:29:48 EDT
Right. OK.
Comment 6 Bojan Smojver 2007-03-25 17:21:08 EDT
With 2.6.20-1.2933.fc6 this doesn't seem to be happening. So, I guess that fix
made it in after all. If you can confirm this, this can be closed.
Comment 7 Bojan Smojver 2007-03-26 05:17:49 EDT
I lied. Still there.
Comment 8 Chuck Ebbert 2007-03-26 10:30:24 EDT
Test kernels for this issue are at:


Please test and report back.
Comment 9 Bojan Smojver 2007-03-27 03:10:56 EDT
Running it now. Will let you know.
Comment 10 Bojan Smojver 2007-03-27 07:06:58 EDT
So far so good. I'll test more tomorrow and report back.
Comment 11 Bojan Smojver 2007-03-28 03:42:47 EDT
Been running this thing all day today. No more BUGs triggered.
