Description of problem:
When testing the latest rawhide kernel on a HP BL685c G1, the following popped
up on my console:

Have you tested any recent kernels?  We're up to kernel-2.6.27-0.382.rc8.git4.fc10

Comment 2 Chuck Ebbert 2008-10-20 22:54:17 UTC
17 days and still no information from the reporter. Close?

Comment 3 Jesse Keating 2008-10-20 22:58:18 UTC
Sure.
