FC Gurus,

Yes, I am still with FC4 :-) I am running perfectly the FC4 2.6.11_xxx kernel.
I loaded 2.6.17 version kernel.

The latest version kernel gets stuck at X-windows x logo.
I had to power-off and reboot with older version.

Can ideas, greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Probably best to stick with the 2.6.11 kernel then. I don't think that you'll find much support for Fedora Core 4 since we're at Fedora 7 now.

You can also build any kernel from kernel.org sources basing the .config on a currently working .config.

Either way, anytime you introduce a new kernel, you may have to update and/or recompile especial kernel modules -- most notoriously the X driver -- as seen in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf line: Driver "nv/vesa/radeon/nvidia/whatever"

Driver "vesa" sometimes works.
