purging previous versions with slight delay - went by too fast for me to
catch :-)

to the WPA2 network
Performed shutdown
Powered on - seemed to start pretty boot with x and the first dot, went back
to text mode, booted very quickly  Start chime is now nice and clean, but
there is still the scratchy sound after.
Started Terminal (prompt in pulsing icon is a ">" symbol, the the prompt in
Terminal is a "$")
logged in as root (su -)
Performed yum install cheese
Transaction was successful installing cheese and cheese-libs dependency
version 1:2.31.91-2.frc14.armv5tel
Switched to Gnome
WPA2 network did not autoconnect, (dint expect it to) -  but connects
manually without issue just as in previosu versions
Started Cheese
Built in camera works like a charm
Inserted blank FAT32 8Gb SD card - automounts and shows contents, unmounted
card, but left in machine
Performed shutdown
Rebooted - does text boot, boots into Gnome, autoconnects to WPA2,
automounts SD card
Perfomed shutdown
Going to make coffee

All in all, a pretty satisfying experience!!!
