Tried to run foldit under Fedora 12 X86_64 and got:

Foldit Error: Could not load library: libGL.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

Then I tried to search the forum for that message and couldn't find a search function. Seriously?

Starting to get exasperated, I start to post a message and see that there are multiple forums available. "Troubleshooting and bugs" looks promising, so I back out. I can't find anywhere to select which forum to read.

At this point I was tempted to throw in the towel, but I thought I'd give it one more chance. I gotta say, though, I'm not impressed.

32-bit libs

so far fold.it is only compiled as a 32 bit app so i think it also needs the 32 bit libraries available.
i know in Kubuntu there is a package called ia32-libs that installs the most common required libs for 32 bit support.
unfortunately i'm not aware of a fedora equivalent to this package.

from what i can tell with a little googling,your best bet is probably to do a "yum whatprovides libGL.so.1" or yum provides and hope it points out a package you can to install.hopefully one with .686 in the name will shows up. it will most likely be "mesa-libGL" your looking for. you may need to add .686 to make it grab the 32 bit version "mesa-libGL.i686" and not the .x86_64 version.

if that works, rinse, lather, and repeat for any other missing libraries

sry if i can't be of more help, ubuntu's repository has spoiled me and its been years since i've used a RPM based distro
