[Bug 198458] Re: Installing a network bridge broke kioslaves

I tried upgrading to Hardy, and only partially succeeded -- the system
is the notorious Dell Optiplex 320, and I couldn't get Hardy's 2.6.24
kernel to boot on it; consequently, I'm now using a mostly-Hardy system
with Gutsy's 2.6.22 kernel. This affects VirtualBox too, because it
needs kernel modules; I couldn't find or compile kernel modules for the
new VBox with the old kernel, so I'm using VBox from Gutsy too.

I'm telling you this sordid story, because testing the network-bridge
set-up is an effort; given the peculiar state of the system, is it worth
it (just to make sure -- this is not a rhetorical question)?

I'm hoping, based on
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/138305, that
Intrepid's 2.6.27 kernel will be able to boot here, and then I'll be
able to try again.

Oh, and as mentioned above, the host is Kubuntu, the guest is (always)
Windows XP. Obviously, the kioslaves problem is only in the host.

Thanks for your attention,
