Sorry - I just picked up on this thread.

In fact, Webstart packages on F11 x64 ARE INDEED supposed to work. I
have been dealing with this very issue.

The problem is there is a bug in the current version of OpenJDK. It's
fixed in an upcoming update. If you want it now, the packages can be had
from:
http://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/java-1.6.0-openjdk-1.6.0.0-24.b16.fc11

The corresponding Bugzilla is:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=507870

I can vaouch that my F11 x64 system with these updated patches runs my
Elluminate Live sessions famously.

Worth looking into.

Cheers,

Chris
