Hi bob
I will give that a try on Tuesday, away for weekend. Cheers...

Hi bob
Thanks for your help. The installs worked and now Google Earth is working. The 'magic' is there but which specific install is magic, is as yet unknown.
Cheers...

Re: Google Earth will not open.

i tried to do the

yum install redhat-lsb-core-4.1-4.fc17.i686

but it told me


Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
No package redhat-lsb-core-4.1-4.fc17.i686 available.
Error: Nothing to do


I am guessing i need to add a repository to my list to be able to get that.

I am running Fedora 17, latest updates installed, 64 bit on a toshiba with an i7.
I tried installing from googles website, using the 64bit opensuse/fedora link, no luck. I used autoplus.. no luck. Manually typing in the yum install... no luck. I'm dead in the water.

Here is where it is interesting. On my DESKTOP, which was running Fedora16 and I did the upgrade process to F17, its a 64bit as well on an AMD quad, Google earth runs PERFECT. My laptop was a fresh F17 install.

My thoughts on why it seems to work on some machines but not others; Linked to clean install vs F16 upgrade,OR linked to processor/vid-card combo. Somewhere in these billions of lines of code, a 1 should be a 0 or a 0 should be a 1 ...
