Re: F11 on Acer Aspire One -- working well

I ran preupgrade (from F10 to F11) on my Acer Apire One overnight and this
morning it was sitting at a nice F11 login screen.

I haven't done much with it so far, but it looks like everything works very
well indeed.

The only thing that I "lost" was the ability to tap the touchpad for a
left-mouse-button click and had to use the actual button on the left of the
touchpad.  That was quickly fixed by going to System-Preferences-Mouse-Touchpad
and setting "Enable mouse clicks with touchpad".

The other issue that I had is that I had added "vga=9" to the relevant line in
grub.conf so I could see the snazzy Fedora 10 Plymouth screen on bootup.
That seems to prevent the snazzy Fedora 11 Plymouth screen from showing up,
though, so I had to remove "vga=9" from grub.conf and all is well.

I don't know if it's just a coincidence, or maybe a different way of reporting
the status, or if there is an actual improvement in the wireless networking.
The Acer seems to log into my wireless router faster now (the balls spin for
less time before it tells me that it's connected) and the power meter is at
100% when the laptop is sitting in a location that the power meter showed at
72-75% when running Fedora 10.

That´s likely because F11 contains one RPM which includes new firmware for several Wifi Cards.
