Yeah, and I've been running x86_64 Fedora on my MythTV boxes since circa Fedora Core 4, or whenever it was Fedora started building native for x86_64. x86_64 is a non-issue, has been for years now. My current Linux-based MythTV systems are all x86_64 Fedora 12 (I also run MythTV on some Mac OS X systems, which is a story for another thread).
