    This time it is no good release for everybody. I can only boot my netbook when i blacklist rt2800pci - otherwise it crashes. My i7-880 on h55 chipset with nv 405 card only works with extra kernel option intel_iommu=off. Not really too much fun as it affects about 50% of my boxes that did not require a boot option before. Well a netbook without wlan is not really good...

    Nope, but it happens on my slowest system with atom cpu with rt2800pci since rc2 (before 32 bit did not build), which i had to identify first - not that funny when the system always crashes when you boot it. Now i blacklisted the correct module to avoid the crash.

    Well i tested the kernel since it was possible on 32 bit with u mainline kernels. The first available was rc2 for 32 bit because it did not compile before. I really need that netbook, did not try that long. If you have got enough spare parts feel free to send it to me. It is my only netbook...
