ok, scrapped fedora :-). Back to ubuntu. Too many annoyances and overall it just feels clumsy b/c it's different I guess.. Also, wifi isn't quite working correctly, ubuntu was correct to blacklist the driver for now. However, the intel 2.5.0 driver and mesa is a vast improvement in performance (still some bugs). I miss synaptic, and update-grub (tried apt-rpm and synaptic but there were segfaults). Also, I found an intel 2.5.1 .deb package to test out.
But seriously, get the flash 64 bit plugin if you haven't already.
