Do you have some more detailed error messages? Akmod must be writing a
log somewhere when it tries to build the kernel modules, maybe a clue is
waiting there to be found...

Good to know that at least the kernel boots and runs. The rt16 kernel
does not include the latest patches from Fedora for video cards so I'm a
bit surprised it runs at all (those patches don't patch cleanly so I
omit them instead of trying to fix them, no time, no time, no time :-)

I have not looked at rebuilding apps on top of f11, a lot has
(thankfully!) moved to Fedora so there is hopefully less work to be done
this time around. 

I've been running rt16 on fc10 and so far no lockouts like before. Of
course that will happen tomorrow (in concert) just because I'm typing
