Me too.
Fortunally I have 2 machine: one laptop with intel and a desktop with AMD so I 
use the desktop for my test.
I already ask about this problem but seems that at the moment only one kernel 
is build with 3dnow extension enabled. I hope for the next build.

Personally I install a FC9 on my virtualizzazione system and build all the 
sugar environment to make my test. You can use this way but it is right only 
if you want develop for XO (I suppose).
