I did likewise.

That leaves at least two questions:
How do I test whether the recent kernels do not like my computer?
How do I make the virt-who stuff go away?
If I ever get my computer to work again,
I'd prefer to not have it as a distraction,
even if it is otherwise harmless.

As mentioned, I have an F14 install that seems to work,
but is no longer update-able.
