"Today, I opened up a terminal, issued the su command, and typed in my root password on my Fedora 14 laptop. I then issued the "yum update" command to install all of the latest Fedora 14 updates. I am running Fedora 14 on a 64-bit Toshiba Satellite L675 laptop. Fedora 14 runs extremely well on it with the exception of no wifi drivers, and the touchpad's response is a little bit subpar. There is also an issue with audio recording/input. I cannot record from my microphone in Audacity. There is an incredible lag/failure in audio recording. When I do try to record, on playback, most of what I recorded is missing. Also, Google Voice does not work from the receiver's perspective. I can hear them fine, but they report that the transmissions from my end are continuously breaking up, making it impossible to understand anything that I am saying. This makes perfect sense given the results of my testing in Audacity. If you want to replicate my results on Google Voice, I was using the latest Chromium release with the latest version of Google Voice downloaded directly from Google's repositories."
