If you run it through a terminal, does it shows any message?

Hello thanks for the quick reply.

if i try to run it trough the terminal it says this

[root@localhost ~]# google-earth
/usr/bin/google-earth: ./googleearth-bin: /lib/ld-lsb.so.3: bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory

do you have the package "redhat-lsb" installed?

also give a look into this and this

yentlp 03-13-2012 02:58 AM

when i try to install the redhat-lsb it say,

[root@localhost ~]# yum install redhat-lsb
Loaded plugins: product-id, refresh-packagekit, security, subscription-manager
Updating certificate-based repositories.
Setting up Install Process
Nothing to do
[root@localhost ~]#

then i followed the links you gave me and it says to yum the */ld-lsb.so.3 but this is my error when i try this.

[root@localhost ~]# yum provides */ld-lsb.so.3
Loaded plugins: product-id, refresh-packagekit, security, subscription-manager
Updating certificate-based repositories.
google-earth | 951 B 00:00
google-earth/filelists | 3.7 kB 00:00
No Matches found

at the other link i found that you must yum the redhat-lsb.i686

[root@localhost ~]# yum install redhat-lsb.i686
Loaded plugins: product-id, refresh-packagekit, security, subscription-manager
Updating certificate-based repositories.
Setting up Install Process
No package redhat-lsb.i686 available.
Error: Nothing to do

so, what am i doing wrong?

what are your active repositories?

What do you mean with this?
I'm English isn't my native language (what you've already noticed)
And i'm fairly new to this OS

This link explains repositories.

Repositories are where *.rpm files that yum can install are stored on the internet.

yentlp 03-15-2012 07:21 AM

Thanks,

i think that this is the place that you guys mean

/etc/yum.repos.d/google-earth.repo

witch contains this

[google-earth]
name=google-earth
baseurl=http://dl.google.com/linux/earth/rpm/stable/x86_64
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1

anyone?

Do you have a Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscription? I only ask because it seems obvious that it may be quicker if you ask Red Hat themselves about this.

The only thing I could suggest is you check to see that all the dependencies are also installed. A dependency is a program other programs need to run properly. If by some mistake you haven't got all the dependencies installed it will not run properly if at all. Unfortunately that is all I can suggest, I don't know Red Hat well enough to be of any further help.
