NEW Design and Guide SOON
I am working on a new guide for Fedora Core 6 64-bit and also a new design for the website, they will be up very soon, hopefully by the release date of Fedora Core 6, if you have any tutorials that you want to submit or comments, please email me support@fc64.org
FEDORAFAQ.ORG
I proudly announce that this web site has officially been added to Fedorafaq.org’s web site as the Unofficial 64-bit Fedora Core Guide! many thanks to fedorafaq.org’s staff
YUMEX
Yumex is a really useful tool, its basically a GUI for yum, it makes looking for updating/installing/removing packages a lot easier than using yum, yumex does not come with Fedora Core out of the box, you can simply install it by going to console and typing:
su
(then enter root password)

yum install yumex
HELLO AND WELCOME TO THE NEW HTTP://WWW.FC64.ORG
I have redesigned and enhanced the the site look and feel, also added more codes, the idea basically started as i installed Fedora Core 64BIT and had so many problems installing flash, java, mplayer, etc. so after lots of googling around, visiting forums, and self taught things, i figured out how to make all these programs work, so i decided to create a web site and post what I’ve experienced to help and make it easier for others, hopefully you will enjoy my site and if you have any ideas on how to make this site even better or want to help out by submitting codes, tutorials, etc please email me at support@fc64.org
WHY WOULD YOU INSTALL A 32BIT FLASH ON A 64BIT OS?
Till now there is no 64BIT flash player and that’s why in the tutorial it teaches how to install the 32BIT flash (same with java), there is nothing we can do right now until adobe release the 64bit flash support and that’s not only in linux, even in windows xp 64bit, you have no support for flash player under the IE 64BIT, and that’s why there is IE 64BIT and IE 32BIT in the OS!!
JAVA and 64BIT
Currently java has 64BIT support but according to so many users and forums online, there is no success in installing it so far and that’s why in the tutorial we installed the 32BIT which works just fine with the 32BIT firefox under a 64BIT OS
