I installed it on my x86_64 box It boots and works fine.
But I found one regression:
lm_sensors stopped working.
sensors just displays "General parse error" (maybe a updated package is
booting into a 2.6.18 kernel solves the issue (sensors works)
one more thing (not a regression):
can you enable the ntfs read only driver in the kernel builds? the
patent issues are resolved and there is no need to recompile it every
time the kernel gets updated.
Um... This is a FC-6 erratum. Let's not go enabling new stuff in a
released version. Rawhide is where this should be enabled first.
