I did try it (and I posted that on fedora-list). It does not support my radeon 9600
graphics chip. I thought the problem was with xorg driver,
but that same driver works just fine in 126.96.36.199-217.2.8.fc11.i586
Today, yum updates daemon flagged that 188.8.131.52-217.2.16.fc11.i586
is available. So I am presently running the update process.
The thing is I see already that 2.6.31 is being labeled as a
fedora 12 package!!
That is why I said that it would appear that F11 seems to be stuck at 2.6.29.
2.6.31 is currently in testing phase upstream, as well as F12, so
don't expect to see it in the stable F11 (at least in the next few
weeks). It's place is in rawhide. F11 is based on 2.6.29 and 2.6.30
has been pushed to updates-testing to avoid forcing the user to
upgrade to rawhide if a new driver is needed. So F11 is not stuck at
2.6.29 and maybe it will migrate to 2.6.30 in the future. The kernel
upgrades are a serious business and it's normal for the developers to
be more conservative.
By the way, if you experience any problems with rawhide, report them
on bugzilla, not on the mailing lists. Or at least at Fedora-testing
