Fedora 13 : kernel- (2010-14235)

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update solves many of the problems with the previous 2.6.34
kernel, in addition to providing some security fixes. There are still
unfixed suspend/resume bugs in this release, but a large number have
been fixed -- enough to make it worth releasing this kernel now
instead of waiting for more fixes. * Fixes suspend/resume problems on
most machines with Radeon graphics.

- Fixes some additional suspend/resume bugs by disabling
asynchronous suspend.

- Solves problems with devices not working that were
caused by 2.6.34's default usage of ACPI to determine
bridge resources. (This means the workaround of adding
'pci=nocrs' should no longer be needed.)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
