(This is a mass-update to all current FC6 kernel bugs in NEW state)


I'm reviewing this bug list as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt
to isolate current bugs in the Fedora kernel.

I am CC'ing myself to this bug, however this version of Fedora is no longer

Please attempt to reproduce this bug with a current version of Fedora (presently
Fedora 8). If the bug no longer exists, please close the bug or I'll do so in a
few days if there is no further information lodged.

Thanks for using Fedora!

Comment 3 Bryan Christ 2008-01-08 15:19:35 UTC
I think this issue can be closed retests with Fedora 7 and Fedora 8 did not
exhibit this problem.  Also rested with Fedora 6 Unity Respin with a kernel
newere than 2.6.19-1.2895 it it worked fine.

Recommend closing this issue.
