Rahul:

Thanks for the tip.

Only reason I thought about it is that I can't run my wireless without
a kernel update, since the kmodrt2860 or akmodrt2860 both require a newer
kernel. But I'm not sure it's worth much messing around, the real F11
should be out in a few more days, and I can always hope it will have
a kernel that matches what's available on rpmfusion. (So that I can play
without until coming up with the nerve to blow away my F10 and do a fresh
install.)

Thanks again!
