Today I downloaded Fedora 10 x64 Beta (Live), put it into a pendrive (with 200Mb of persistant overlay) and attached to the laptop (which has Turion+ATI mobile): flawless victory.
a) frightening speed (it boots way faster than my desktop pc with a sata hdd, and we are talking about an USB pendrive...I think this is a good achievement even if my desktop PC is 5 years older than the laptop...)
b) GUI environment boot without problems at all
c) wireless AND bluetooth working out of the box
d) correct screen resolution
e) synaptic touchpad already configured for "push" feat, out of the box this too...
f) you can save some minor customization, and it will be remembered on the next boots...
1) the manual configuration of Wireless Network Devices DOESN'T work: I correctly configured the access point and the WPA passphrase but no data can be exchanged. Reason unknown...
2) at each boot, fedora continue to ask me to insert a "keyring passphrase". It is annoying, and it doesn't explain what this thing is and why it asks...
3) no DRI (I noticed that no xorg.conf is present on /etc/X11), this is no good :\
4) having no root account out of the box is a potential security threat if accessing the net, it would be far better to have an automatic procedure that ask you what you wish when first boot occurs
this is a GREAT beta, keep on rollin', fedora staff!!
