I’ve now installed Fedora Core on my new laptop. It seems to work mostly fine, even if I still have to investigate some minor annoyances:
- sound doesn’t work (I think I have to use ALSA)
- the irritating GDM “beep” at login is _very_ loud.
- I have to learn stuff about acpi/suspend/special keys etc.
The thing that annoys me most, though, is that the touchpad is always active and while typing I often move the cursor by mistake. Under Windows you can turn the touchpad on/off with a special key, but that doesn’t work in linux.
