Thanks for your work.

In any case, today I was able to successfully install and run a Fedora VM on my
laptop (which is more underpowered than the desktop machine), although I did a
few things differently like using a fixed-size VBox disk image and installing a
32-bit system. After that, and after installing some packages, I was able to
prepare a Fedora-friendly freecell-solver .src.rpm and submitted it here:


Another thing I considered doing in the Fedora VM was an install of the Oracle
RDBMS (which I was told was free for development purposes) and play with it
a little. Not sure I'll do that, but I might.
