I had this idea a while back to increase the testing that usptream
kernels get, by pushing them out to updates-testing. It's something
that sounds great on paper, but in reality would be a total disaster.
2.6.14rc2 doesn't even boot on half my test boxes right now, and
the feedback from folks at the office and bugzilla, it's pretty grim
and nowhere near ready for general consumption.
2.6.13 was pretty much the same way. For quite a few people, it was
unusable without the PCI fixes that went into 22.214.171.124
I've cooked up a 126.96.36.199 test kernel that I'll be pushing
fc4-updates-testing in the next few hours. It'll likely need
quite a bit more work before its ready for updates-final too,
but it gives people something to play with until its ready.
Sooner I can lay my hands on that the better. I need to roll this
usb-cdc-acm performance patch into that and get it on a box with several
ISDN modems. The whole upgrade to 2.6.14rc2 seems to be a real mess
(re: thread I'm in the middle of over on fedora-devel over the kudzu
catch-22). As soon as that's available, I'll try giving it a hammering.
One BIG question...
This is vis-a-vis the kudzu conflict vs 2.6.13 kernels being beat on
over on the fedora-devel list. On what side of the fence will this
188.8.131.52 kernel fall? Does it conflict with the kudzu currently with
the 2.6.12 kernels? Will this 184.108.40.206 kernel provide us with a
stepping stone past the kernel <-> kudzu catch-22 critical dependency?
The 2.6.13-1.1567 kernel (which is really the 2.6.14rc2 kernel)
conflicts with the existing kudzu. The kudzu from rawhide conflicts
with any kernel < 2.6.13. Sooo... Is it real or is it memorex? Is it
really < 2.6.13 or is it really < 2.6.14rc2? What happens in the
boundary condition we appear to be approaching?
