In the hope of getting a newer version of Fedora Linux running, I have ‘updated’ the 188.8.131.52 APC kernel to 184.108.40.206.. This was achieved by the labour-intensive method of applying all the incremental kernel patches in sequence, and manually fixing any code that ‘failed’ the patch… So.. I am now running Fedora 13 with kernel 220.127.116.11 on the APC:
$ uname -a Linux rgapc01 18.104.22.168-apc #1 Mon Aug 20 17:25:44 BST 2012 armv6l armv6l armv6l GNU/Linux
Sadly, this was all to no avail, as Fedora 14 still throws a tombstone when udev starts.. I had tried to produce a hand-crafted patch for the leap to 2.6.33, but this was not successful.. Fedora 14 came with kernel 2.6.40, which is quite a way ahead of the APC one..
As has been stated before… What is really needed is the full source for all the APC drivers, and an up-to-date version of the kernel!
