Fedora 14 x86_64 on new Macbook AIR - mostly success

Just a short report:

- Dualboot setup with rEFIt
- Default install with nomodeset to avoid broken graphics (seems nv 
driver doesn't like the M320 in the MBA)
- Using USB Ethernet adaptor to have network - added rpmfusion
- Installed kmod-wl (for the wireless card)
- Installed kmod-nvidia
- ran nvidia-xconfig as root

What works:

- Suspend/resume, no prob
- Webcam Just Works (tested with cheese)
- network works

What fails (partly)

- no sound
- external monitor via Minidisplayport doesn't work OOTB, needs fiddling 
with nvidia tool
- Touchpad options are missing, only basic functions (no right-click, no 
multi-touch)

So I would give it a 90% success ATM. Will file BZs on the #fails
