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

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?

This link explains repositories.

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

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

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.
