I am using the 64-bit linux version of GenomeBrowse (GenomeBrowse-Lin64-1.0.x). It is a wonderful tool except the application will terminate by itself (crush?) after running several tens of minutes.

My system: Fedora 16 (3.6.7-4.fc16.x86_64) I installed the GenomeBrowse under /usr/local as root user.

Hi Jami,

Thank you for your reply. I have tested both versions and unfortunately they share the same problem.

Wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Hi Ge,

Unfortunately we were not able to test GenomeBrowse on every distribution of Linux.

One thing to check is if you are running CentOS or Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) that you try our RHEL5 build of GenomeBrowse. The Lin64 build works on most modern Ubuntu/Debian distributions, but does has some known issues on RHEL distros that can cause crashes. I believe Fedora is a Red Hat Enterprise distribution.

From our download page click the RHEL 64 download button and try that.

If you should still have crashing issues with the new version please feel free to email us at so we can help diagnose the issue.

Thanks, Jami...
