Touchpad is not working with fedora 11. This is a big downer and leaves fedora in the dust. Ubuntu 9.04 does an excellent job. I hope things improve with updates.
yum install gsynaptics synaptic
Then go to System>Preferences>Touchpad, General tab enable 'Touchpad' and in the Tapping tab enable 'Tapping' and 'Faster tapping'.
It really should have been included by default. I wonder how the developers forgot to include this essential notebook tool in the live cd?
I'm happy all is well now.
