Since you are building your own kernel, use the latest vanilla kernel (2.6.12-rc5) and the corresponding kdb patches. That kernel+kdb combination works fine with the user space packages from FC3. To stop up2date trying to replace your custom kernel, set this line in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date. pkgSkipList=kernel; --------------------------- Use http://oss.sgi.com/ecartis to modify your settings or to unsubscribe.
