Desktop Environment

I have tried Gnome, Gnome shell, Compiz fusion and sugar on my laptop everything works well.

Sound

Sound works by default.

VLC

Vlc 1.0.6 crashed initially , ran vlc using ‘MALLOC_CHECK=1 vlc’ to rectify the problem.

Wired network

Fedora uses r8169 module and it works

Wireless

Wireless won’t work by default, need to install kmod-wl package from rpmfusion non free repository.

Touchpad

Works fine. Tapping is not enabled by default, enable it by visiting System->Preferences->Mouse->Touchpad

Webcam

Webcam works. Clicked some pictures with cheese.

Bluetooth

Works. Transferred some files to my mobile.

Multimedia keys

Multimedia keys response is poor. (Play, pause,next,previous,stop,volume buttons ) I don’t know whether its the fault of my machine, because i can increase the volume with ease but cannot reduce it.
