rawhide kernel install failed


I just tried your suggestion to install the rawhide kernel. Not exactly
the result we probably had in mind.

My W700 laptop ran beautifully under Fedora 10, but runs haltingly under
Fedora 11. Process chains that should run smoothly halt at seemingly
random points. These process chains include init strings like cold
boots, restarts, and shutdowns. Also ftp/scp transfers, or in the case
of the wireless connection, simply running idle. I can resume and  keep
the processes running by hitting any key on the keyboard, moving the
mouse, or in some other way generating interrupts. But as soon as I
stop, the wireless connection or any running process chain will fail in
a few seconds.


P.S. I'd report the following error, but the site/domain does not appear
to exist at this time. All I can find with 'whois' is that the domain
belongs to Seth Vidal in Durham, NC.
