I havn't tested everything in fedora 17 but, all seems to work so far. Only my sdhc card doesn't seem to work, I read the fedora acer wiki page and it mentioned that it is a common problem. I can live with out it, it is just convienient for a netbook. Since i go to the library and coffee shop on occasion. if any one knows some commands to make fedora linux read my sdhc card, i would appreciate it. I've tried a few I fount on the internet, yet my linux doesn't even recognize it is their. I am using an encrypted hd and the binaries might be buggered, so I am going to clean the hard drive and try to clean the sdhc card and reinstall the xfce spin beefy.
