Well, yea. I figure they will fix it pretty quick since the bug is active and folks are working on it. I wouldn't want my change to break something in the future when just using a known good version, one that I was using until just the other day, will work just fine. Also, I'll forget I changed that and let the config update when it gets updated again. They could lead to breakage too. Also, I was wanting to update the kernel anyway. I had trouble with my network on a older kernel and had to update to fix that. So far, the new 3.3 kernel has helped my network even more. I was actually fixing more than one issue with the kernel upgrade and downgrading was all of a one line command. I'm more likely to remember downgrading than editing a config file these days. I'm just glad to get some of this mess sorted. < sighs > Dale :-) :-) -- I am only responsible for what I said ... Not for what you understood or how you interpreted my words!
