use it. However, I have only been able to use FC5 in a proper way
(e.g. suspend works etc.). Both FC6 and FC7 do not work. The X server
that comes with Ubuntu does properly suspend, but although FC7 now uses
the same, I still have a problem with its settings. Perhaps as one
reader suggested, it is something with the DPMS, as I also noticed a
white screen when I tried to suspend... But as said, Ubuntu (V7.04)
seems to have gotten it right.
