It seems to also work on F8 x86_64. Unfortunately, it didn't help with
my Notes install. It seems that the installer has its own JRE packed
with it - and it's this one that is failing (Xinerama issue).

Still looking for anyone who has Notes 8.0 installed successfully on F8
x86_64. If you have, a step-by-step guide would be great!

Cheers,

Chris
