While I'm at it, trying Fedora 27 on the old spare HDD on my upgraded 2009 PC workstation.
My wifi card needs the proprietary broadcom-wl driver from rpmfusion, which I had to google around to figure out, and which I have no idea how I *would* install if I didn't have a working slow-wifi USB dongle that worked with stock kernel.
Ubuntu provides an easier way to install the driver, but still I think needs network to do it. :)
Seems to crash the display server when the screen dims after idle. Whoops! Also it turned off wifi when turning the screen off, which is .... not good for an unattended vagrant setup that needs the network, either of them. :(
