I don't think you have missed anything, I think supercollider 3.4.x does 
not support Gedit3 (which is what fc16 has). You would have to upgrade 
to supercollider 3.5.x - that one is available from the planetccrma 
testing repository in fc16 (install planetccrma-repo-testing to access 
that) - I'm not 100% sure the upgrade will be fully automatic, you may 
have to remove some package manually as the names and contents of 
packages shifted (long story). Let me know how it goes.
