EDIT: testing is now over, thanks everyone!

I tried kernel-220.127.116.11-24.fc13.x86_64 when -19 had problems. It worked fine for me, but now I'm testing kernel-18.104.22.168-35.fc13.x86_64 and it's working great, too.

we'd go with -24, on the principle of pulling in the least possible amount of changes from what we've tested so far. -35 will of course be pulled in as an update, when you install updates. edit: thanks for the feedback, though, it's helpful!

Kernel works fine so far using Nouveau with a GT200-based graphics card. However, my keyboard layout for pre-boot authentication (I'm using full disk encryption with cryptsetup-luks) got changed to English (was German before).

Working well here so far. This is a 3 year old Toshiba laptop with Intel graphics and an IPW3945 wireless adapter. Network is up and working.

Going to try once I get home, posting to make sure I see message. Hmmm ... changes to the nouveau graphics, very interesting.

...We're looking at pulling kernel-22.214.171.124-24.fc13 into Fedora 13 Beta...To install it, use 'rpm -ivh' for the kernel and -devel packages. If you have kernel-headers installed, 'rpm -Uvh' that first. Then reboot to the kernel and check that it boots up okay. Please reply to this thread with your results. Thanks!
Yup, no problems with the kernel-126.96.36.199-24.fc13. :rolleyes:
Kernel was installed on two different systems with two cores and 3 GB of RAM allocated on each, all went well. :cool:

Now on the kernel-184.108.40.206-35.fc13. :)

Hope this helps. ;)

I just installed the -24 PAE kernel (and headers, as I already had kernel-headers installed for some reason), and it booted mostly ok. I say mostly because after I entered my password at the login screen, it came up with my desktop background then went black, desktop background, black again -- then my desktop came up and here I am.
Hardware: amd phenom 8650 triple core 2,3ghz, 2gb ram, graphics: Nvidia 6150 I think? >system > about this computer only shows processor which I already had written down. neither /var/log/messages or dmesg gave me the particulars when I grep'd Nvdiia though there was some output such as: cat /var/log/messages | grep Nvidia

And my monitor is an Acer 19" at 1440x900 resolution.

Thumbs up on the -24 kernel here. I tested it using the proprietary nvidia driver on my 6200 and it ran second life just fine.

Working fine here on a Acer Aspire One D250. :)

This P4 system with an old NV11 Nvidia embedded card that locked up on boot with the 220.127.116.11-19.fc13.i686.PAE kernel now boots properly with the 18.104.22.168-24.fc13.i686.PAE kernel.

I don't use the experimental mesa drivers on this machine, as it's used as a print server and an irc box.

Seems to be all right for me. I've run yum, firefox, and transmission, all without problems.
This post even reminded me to update my smolt profile.:)

Anyone tested with openchrome drv?
Preferably a crome900?

Just to update my previous post that I got a black screen in between desktop backgrounds after I entered login password. Last night I did a new update a couple hours after I installed the new kernel, I hadn't updated before since I was running out the door; (there may have been updates pending since no later than yesterday morning when I last checked) and then shut down, rebooted this morning and no black screen after I entered my password. Just clocked for a few moments then the desktop came up.

High end with nouveau likes the kernel also.

I have noticed some resolution weirdness upon restart after installing the kernel. On the older P4 machine it seemed that resolution went from 1440x990 to 800x600 (app values but resolution decreased significantly). On the high end machine, after restart, while the dual screen didn't appear to have a change of resolution, the virtual workspace icons at the bottom right of the screen were about 4 X bigger than usual.
Shutdown and cold boot solved these resolution problems, which haven't returned.

Thanks to everyone for the feedback! Based on the positive response here and on the lists, we spun a new RC of the beta with the -24 kernel included, so now if you still want to help testing,
please test that. See here (http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/test-announce/2010-April/000061.html). Closing and un-stickying the thread.
