GoogleEarth on Sabayon Linux


Hello

As I understand, GoogleEarth should be included on the Sabayon Linux LiveCD. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sabayon_Linux


What I am doing wrong, but I am unable to find* GoogleEarth on Sabayon10?


Any help is appreciated very much. Thank you!

John


* with grep and the GUI :-(

I would try 'find -iname google*' without the apostrophes of course.

Thank's a lot business_kid for the help :-)

Ok, I booted the PC from the Sabayon 10 DVD and entered the following command in a shell/commandline as SU:


localhost sabayonuser # find -iname google*
localhost sabayonuser #

But unfortunaltey nothing was found, according my impression, the machine did not even start to search
a string with Google* ....


What am I doing wrong? Thank's a lot for any additional help!

John

That command searches the current directory down. If you find the packages dir(s) on Sabayon and run the command there, it will search the packages. Sorry if I didn't make that clear.

cd /mnt/cdrom
find -iname '*google*'

Sorry, didn't make clear it searches down in the current directory. With the cd mounted, on for example /mnt/cdrom, run
Quote:
cd /mnt/cdrom
find -iname '*google*'
The package manager on Sabayon is called entropy and there's 1400 packages somewhere so you should find out how to get them

Thank's a lot for the feedback! Should the following command be ok?

cd /mnt/cdrom

localhost cdrom # find -iname google*
localhost cdrom #

the same with

localhost cdrom # find -iname *google*
localhost cdrom #


Do you really think Sabayon Linux 10 does include Google Earth(I really need a LinuxLive CD which built-in GoogleEarth)?

No, but if they had done a package and put the space into it, you'd find it. Some systems package everything. LFS packages nothing. I'm on slackware - it packages stuff, and 'slackbuilds' exist for much more which (theoretically) allows you to build them painlessly. It doesn't always work, but it's pretty good.

Excuse my error here.

If you're booted on a live cd, the cd may well be on /mnt/sysimage or something weird and not /mnt/cdrom at all.

cat /proc/mounts
will show them. The cd is usually /dev/sr0. You can usually fine a file list or a package list in one of the top directories. Check them. Also, google

sabayon googleearth

and see how other sabayon users have done it.

If it is installed by default then simply typing "google" (without the quotes" and hitting tab once or twice should either autocomplete for Google Earth (it's usually google-earth but I have seen googleearth too) or show a couple of options.
