F16(x86_64) and no google-earth

New install of F16(x86_64) and used dangermouse auto plus to install google earth. It said the install was successful and I have an icon in the applications grid.

Using the icon, I am returned to the current desktop/application I have open. Nothing appears to happen.

Using terminal, the system freezes the mouse-pad and nothing happens and I get this error

$ /usr/bin/google-earth
/usr/bin/google-earth: ./googleearth-bin: /lib/ld-lsb.so.3: bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory

From another site I tried this:

$yum what provides /lib/lb-lsb.so.3

and found it.

$yum install redhat...i686

I rebooted the computer and tried the icon, nothing.
From terminal I get this now.

$ /usr/bin/google-earth
./googleearth-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libfontconfig.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
$ whereis libfontconfig.so.1
libfontconfig.so: /usr/lib64/libfontconfig.so.1

Do I need to move the ...so.1 file to a different location? Would it be /usr/bin/something?

No, the answer is in the following post. I don't have nividia anything, so I followed bbfuller's suggestion.

http://fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?p=1532716

and coded:
$yum install redhat-lsb.i686 redhat-lsb-graphics.i686 redhat-lsb-printing.i686

Now Google Earth works fine.

Thanks go to the gurus that push us noobs to look a little harder.



Dave.

Re: F16(x86_64) and no google-earth

Hello One Way Dave

I found the 64 bit Google Earth was a bit of a cheat as it wouldn't work without a lot of 32 bit libraries.

I found a fix that entailed doing this:

Code:
yum install redhat-lsb.i686 redhat-lsb-graphics.i686 redhat-lsb-printing.i686

I need to type faster. Thank you. I had found your suggestion elsewhere and it worked like a charm.

Dave.
