I have upgraded my Fedora 13 to F14 once the Fedora 14 was available. But Salome 5.1.4 did not work on my new system. It always crashed when it starts:

I had to upgrade Salome to 5.1.5 and I hope Salome 5.1.5 can work on my new system. It’s a pity that I have tried the compiled version: Debian 4.0 and 5.0, Scientific Linux 5.1, which cannot work on F14. I was exhausted, but I never give it up. I download the Salome 5.1.5 Mandriva 2010 version. On the final step of installation, the setup program says:
Wow, it works.

I recommend the Mandriva 2010 version of Salome 5.1.5 for Fedora 14.
However, The mesh component cannot be opened, although the geom component works well. Building symbolic link to necessary library can solve the problem.
$ su # cd /usr/lib64/ # ln -sf libjpeg.so libjpeg.so.7 # ln -sf libboost_signals.so libboost_signals.so.5 # ln -sf libboost_system.so libboost_system.so.5 # ln -sf libboost_thread-mt.so libboost_thread-mt.so.5
I hope you enjoy the Salome 5.1.5 journey on Fedora 14. Start!
