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 ...
