I've been working on a 2.6.19 update for FC6 over the last
few weeks, and it's starting to feel 'almost ready'.
Before I push this out to updates-testing though, I'd rather
have a few people 'kick the tyres' to make sure there's
nothing really silly wrong with these.
There are still 1-2 bits that need some more tweaking/fixing that I
already know about, but I'm blocking on other people to get those fixed.
You can find them at http://people.redhat.com/davej/kernels/Fedora/FC6/
- The big difference here vs the 2.6.19 that briefly showed up
in rawhide is that this kernel sticks with the older IDE code
(so you won't get a nasty surprise when your /dev/hda becomes sda etc).
I just don't feel comfortable pushing that as an update without
worrying about regressions.
It doesn't boot on my rawhide box which is a one IDE hard drive box.
the error is:
"/bin/nash: error while loading shared libraries: libm.so.6: cannot
open shared object file: No such file or directory.
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!"
none of the other 2.6.19 kernels from rawhide will boot either.
