Default Installing Roche 454 Analysis software version 2.6 (gsAssembler) on Fedora 15

In case it helps anyone else, to install the Roche 454 sequence analysis software (gsAssembler or newbler, gsMapper, etc.) on a computer running 64 bit Fedora 15, there were a few libraries that needed to be installed first, but a necessary condition to get this to work for me was to first enable both the "updates" and "updates-testing" repositories. This is done using

Applications → System Tools → Add/Remove Software → System → Software Sources → Software Sources

Then, this command installed the necessary libraries, along with a number of dependencies:
sudo yum install zlib.i686 libXi.i686 libXtst.i686 libXaw.i686
The install then went smoothly.

However, the "454 Sequencing Applications" menu did not appear in the main Applications menu. To make them show up (and I am operating in Gnome 3's "Fallback mode" if that makes a difference), I also needed this command

sudo ln -s /etc/xdg/menus/applications-merged /etc/xdg/menus/applications-gnome-merged
For reference, here is the error I received before enabling all repositories:

	Error: Protected multilib versions: libgcc-4.6.0-10.fc15.i686 != libgcc-4.6.1-9.fc15.x86_64

Thanks for that. I've been running the 454 applications on Fedora versions 11-14 (64bit) for a couple of years now, but I haven't yet upgraded to Fedora 15. When I first installed it, I had some trouble and eventually (with the help of my local 454 applications person and the software engineers at 454) figured out the extra libraries that need to be installed. It looks like it's slightly different for Fedora 15.
