it's not as if I couldn't install in many other ways,
nfs/http/yum_upgrade but I didn't see any work arounds suggested either.

I don't need to have F11-Beta installed on this Aspire One...I was
thinking that I could see if xorg fixed virtual scrolling as suggested


where Alex says "Virtual desktop scrolling got dropped when xrandr 1.2
support was added to the driver.  It has since been re-added, but
requires xserver 1.6 and xrandr 1.3."

because it's hard to use 1024x600 without some extra virtual screen but
I don't know that those versions are in F11-Beta anyway and thought if I
went for the Beta, I could provide other feedback (and if necessary, beg
for these updates).

Thanks Paul, I should have looked in Bugzilla...
