Mine is x86_32

This is what I have, straight F11 updates:

$ rpm -qa | grep -i netbeans

Seems exactly like your list, only of word boundaries
(32) and of a different listing order?

Did F11 Netbeans 6.5.1 install completely for you using
the standard updates w/o updates-testing repository?

Clearly, it is complaining of dependencies that it cannot
locate, the libraries specifically, but only for some plugin

I posted the list of problems reported by the plugin
installer - basically that there were problems connecting
to a site, problems locating a specific library dependency
that is not available and then some more.

[Shifting to a different topic]

Here is another potential issue...  what about Fedora's
Netbeans being dependent of $HOME/.netbeans as the
place to store plugins and other installations - what
happens if one decides to download and install Netbeans
from Netbeans & not use Fedorized version?

Would there be a conflict, i.e. mixing of projects & components
into this singular location?  Is there a workspace-switcher for
Netbeans so as to keep separation between different versions
of NB & its workspaces?
