Well, the 2.6.39 kernel was forked, but now I see they have pulled back to 2.6.28...... I don't know what happened to make them pull back the ...39 or if the new ...38- has support. It might be worth it to try the 38 and see if you have support.
Well, just saw that kernel-2.6.39-0.rc0.git11.0.fc16.src.rpm is available now (it wasn't there just a hour or so ago when I built the latest 38
You will have to rebuild the src.rpm for fedora 14 if that is what you are using. You can rebuild the kernel for your system by opening a terminal and running the following commands one at a time. The last command will build the kernel while the first two are to install and setup the rpmdevtools/user space that are needed to build the kernel. This is a very processor intensive build and will require some time to complete. (15-90 minutes depending on your sys.)
su -c 'yum install rpmdevtools yum-utils'
su -c 'yum-builddep kernel-2.6.39-0.rc0.git11.0.fc16.src.rpm'
rpmbuild --rebuild --with baseonly --without debuginfo --target=`uname -m` kernel-2.6.39-0.rc0.git11.0.fc16.src.rpm
When the above command has completed you should have the new kernel, kernel-header, kernel-devel in ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/...... ether i686 or x86_64 folder.
cd to the folder that contains your new rpms. Change <version> to the version you have built and install with:
su -c 'yum localinstall --nogpgcheck kernel-<version>.rpm kernel-headers-<version>.rpm kernel-devel-<version>.rpm'
hope this helps,

:I can't get the kernel-2.6.39-0.rc0.git11.0.fc16.src.rpm to build on my f14 x64. I am going to wait a few days and check in at koji.fedoraproject.org to try the next git kernel. I will post back when I get a ...39 to build.
