Which FC6 install CD? The original one, or the respin?

Try the respin if not already tried:

Comment 2 Joachim Backes 2007-04-28 05:28:26 UTC
With the original CD.

(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 4 Joachim Backes 2008-01-08 07:24:14 UTC
Could not reproduce this bug in F8!
