    Please add 'Quota support causes OOPS' Someone posted a patch but I don't

    Actually this bug applies to all kernels as far back as early 2.3 afair.

    I believe this would be the referenced patch.

    Please add 'APM resume returns the machine to the first tty, crashes X' This
    appeared w/ test8. If this is intended, I'd be very happy to know if so and
    I can write in to xfree86 about it. If not intended..fix needed.

    With test8, pcmcia either with kernel code, mixed, or dhinds code; nothing is

    This one can tentatively be moved into 'fixed' I was one of the people
    submitting this a long time ago and since that point in time numerous updates
    have occured and I'm now able to transfer multi-gigs of data day after day
    and no problems.

    Fixed. Only thing now is cosmetic. It spews between a few and a few hundred
    lines to klog on disconnect.

    I use ppp frequently w/ current kernels, works fine.

    Hmm, upgrade cdrecord perhaps? I'm using the second to last release and I'm
    not burning coasters. cdrecord is undergoing a scsi subsystem rewrite.

    Related to pcmcia, no, not fixed. Certain mixes of drivers and hardware can
    stick the interrupt until they're removed and a different card inserted.

    OOPS fixed, spewage not fixed.
