Large SD card hangs Ubuntu Edgy

Damn… never brag about uptime :-(

Today I received a 2GB SD card which I’m going to use to store ssh and gpg keys on. Of cause I’m going to encrypt it like I wrote about some days ago. When I inserted the SD card into my laptop everything just froze… it guess I’m hit by bug #61758. Ubuntu Edgy uses kernel 2.6.17 which seems to be affected by this bug. It should be fixed in 2.6.18 though.

I’ll try to patch my kernel module… god I hoped those days where over. Exciting to see if I can even remember how to do it. I hope this gets fixed soon, life is to short to compile kernel modules. My laptop should just work.
