Hi All,

I'm a long time Fedora user and as a Linux sys admin very comfortable with RHEL. I installed F17 LXDE today on my Asus EEE PC netbook and was surprised to find that ACPI was not installed by default. Now this wasn't a problem for myself and I am obviously aware that Fedora's emphasis is bleeding edge, not rookie Linux n00bs. However, this is a very small package and it seems curious that a spin designed for low end hardware, which obviously includes netbooks, would select not to have this vital software as part of the standard install.

So just a lodging a friendly suggestion for F18 and future spins that this package be added to the default install.

Long live the beefy miracle!
