Anyone tried 2.6.11 in updates/testing ?


I'm thinking about giving it a crack but want to know if anyone knows of any showstoppers (yeah, I know thats what testing is supposed to find...) such as nvidia graphics driver, wireless networking or ntfs access probs. Alternatively just post your thoughts and comments.
Cheers
Chris

I tried the latest build two days ago, and my system felt very "laggy". Audio out crackled, and switching between desktops was slow (I could watch the redraw). 3D GL applications ran OK, but 2D operations were even slower than usual (Nvidia). I don't think it's ready for prime time just yet.

I'm now running the 2.6.11-1.12_FC3 kernel, and it looks good. No more lag or audio issues. No issues at all over the last 24 hours. If you're interested in trying it, this kernel seems good to go.

Hey macemoneta,

Where did you get that kernel from? The latest I can see in updates/testing is 2.6.11-1.7_FC3.

Dave Jones (Fedora kernel developer) posts them as patches are added.

I had to go to HERE and download
selinux-policy-targeted-1.17.30-2.94.noarch.rpm
and install it with
rpm -Uvh selinux-policy-targeted-1.17.30-2.94.noarch.rpm
to get the above mentioned kernel to load. Before the upgrade, I had selinux-policy-targeted-1.17.30-2.93

After that, it worked, including being able to install the Nvidia 3D Accelerated drivers.

Thanks macemoneta

EDIT:
Actually it is now:
kernel-2.6.11-1.14_FC3
so a new version has been added since macemoneta posted.
