Here's why googleEarth won't install on Fedora 14
I got googleEarth ..
wget http://dl.google.com/earth/clHere's ...EarthLinux.bin
Following instructions on page 5 of
it abends when you try to install it - here's why
/tmp/ge/setup.sh - line 278 and subsequent - read as follows Note "we can do Fedora later"
# This is a gross hack for 6.0. Try to ensure LSB runtime is present in
# the absence of a real packaging system with real dependencies. This solves
# this "only" for Debian/Ubuntu, but that's believed to be the majority right
# now and we can do Fedora later.
if [ ! -f /etc/lsb-release ]; then
echo "This version of Google Earth requires LSB 4.0 support which you"
echo "do not seem to have."
if [ -f /etc/debian_version]; then
echo "You have a Debian system. Installing LSB now."
try_run -absolute /bin/su root -c "apt-get install lsb"
try_run -absolute /bin/su "yum install redhat-lsb"
Just thot I'd share
