    I do understand what mcgreg is saying though; it seems like everyone is a lot more touchy about imagined offences these days. Maybe that means there has been progress in solving the real problems and now people are looking at the little stuff, but it seems to me that there are enough big problems in the world we should be trying to resolve first.

    So, how's that new kernel working for everyone ?

      I'm getting a BSOD from time to time (black screen of death), some module is crapping out. Also they left stlc45xx broken, it doesn't compile. My X-Fi Prelude works now out of the box, looks like the git alsa is completely merged.

          The graphics part of 2.6.31-rc2 is working fine (as well as xf86-video-ati git normally works, anyway), but I have been having issues with ejecting DVDs from my optical drive for a few days now (git copies of Linus' linux-2.6 tree)

          In gnome (ubuntu 9.04), either right click + eject, or pressing the eject button on the drive leads to the following:

          Code:
          Cannot eject volume
          
          There was an error ejecting the volume or drive.
          
          org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume.UnknownFailure:
          eject: unable to eject, last error: inappropriate ioctl for device.

            I am testing that kernel now too, it has a major problem, device-mapper is broken. I found a working patch here:

            http://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/33534/mbox/

            Also for older gcc you need one additional patch:

              Would that explain why my cd-rom doesn't want to burn images or blank cds anymore?

                I don't think so. Do you use old legacy code with /dev/hdX? Only Debian seems to use that with current kernels - all others use libata.
