http://forums.fedoraforum.org – kernel-3.5.0-4.fc17 totally bjorked my system on install. This kernel reports itself as kernel-3.5.1-4.fc17 on uname -a and leaves in the wake of its installation two initramfs files, one named as initramfs-3.5.0-4.fc17 and the other as initramfs-3.5.1-4.fc17. It is listed in grub2 menu.cfg as 3.5.0-4 but tries to load non-existent modules from 3.5.1-4, which leaves network useless as well as videocard, filesystems, and other drivers. It is a miracle that I was even able to boot into that kernel at all and see anything. I ended up with a stretched screen as well. Just a warning to those (HowTos)
