AFAICT Fedora 14, 15 and 16 shipped a broken VM for x86_64.  Meanwhile
the Fedora i586 (32 bit) VM works flawlessly on 64-bit Linux: it is
just a case of downloading the right RPM and installing it. I might
not be following the right bugzilla issues, or mailing list, as I
haven't noticed if Fedora has plans to put the i586 VM in the yum
repositories for x86_64 users.

Anyone heard anything?
