I'm running a x86_64 system since the release of FC2.

As to my experiences the best repository for addons is Dag Wieers repo.
There are numerous packages available. If you are missing one, write a
mail to Dag and he usually will add the package within a week or so. The
packages are very well crafted and I never had any compatibility issues
with the Fedora Core set. Given Dag's knowledge and experiences with
packaging for Fedora and Red Hat you can hardly do it better for
yourself.

yum config file is
  [dag]
  name= Dag Fedora Extra $releasever - $basearch - Base
  baseurl=http://apt.sw.be/fedora/$releasever/en/$basearch/dag/
  enabled=1
  gpgcheck=1

Another one is Axel Thimm's repo. The Yum file is:
 [at-stable]
 name=ATrpms for Fedora Core $releasever [ $basearch ] stable
 baseurl=http://apt.atrpms.net/fedora/$releasever/en/$basearch/at-stable
 enabled=1
 gpgcheck=1



You can import the gpg keys by:

rpm --import http://dag.wieers.com/packages/RPM-GPG-KEY.dag.txt
rpm --import http://ATrpms.net/RPM-GPG-KEY.atrpms
