Picasa 3 will not open up in Fedora 15 final release


I have tried to run Picasa 3 (beta) and version 2.7 in Fedora 15 installed from rpms and get the same results.

First of all - [gary@FedoraCore15 ~]$ uname -r 2.6.38.8-32.fc15.i686.PAE
F15 is a fresh install, no preupgrade etc. Dual core processor, 6 gigs memory 2.5 TB

At first I got an SELinux alert, troubleshooter gave me three options. I followed the last option, I believe I set a policy for wine-preloader only to mmap low memory. These were the commands I got from the troubleshooter:

[root@FedoraCore15 gary]# grep wine-preloader /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
[root@FedoraCore15 gary]# semodule -i mypol.pp

After this I got no errors from SELinux or anywhere else, but no Picasa. If I run Picasa from a terminal I get the following: [gary@FedoraCore15 ~]$ /usr/bin/picasa
/usr/bin/picasa: line 189: 3186 Segmentation fault (core dumped) "$PIC_BINDIR"/wrapper check_dir.exe.so
/usr/bin/picasa: line 248: 3298 Segmentation fault (core dumped) "$PIC_BINDIR"/wrapper set_lang.exe.so
[gary@FedoraCore15 ~]$

Any help appreciated, thanks
Gary

It should have read: I have tried to run Picasa 3 (beta) and version 2.7 installed from rpms in Fedora 15 and get the same results with both.

No I just do not like having to use wine to run a MS windows program .

The web interface has worked just fine for me.

fedora 15 just might be using code that it too new for picasa from google
This is very normal for fedora
Wait 6 months to a year for the rest of the world to catch up .


however the version in the fedora repo should work
Code:
su -
yum search picasa
-- if there  install

Well no Picasa in repo - guess its not that big a deal. One reason I wanted it was to see if I could use the pictures screensaver that comes with it. Apparently the developers of Fedora 15 thought anything but blank screen was not necessary.
