GoogleEarth installation problem on Fedora18

0 votes

So, I decided to try installing GoogleEarth (GE) for the first time ever. I found the following:

and tried it the following:

% wget -c
% sudo yum localinstall google-earth-stable_current_x86_64.rpm 

But I got the following:

Transaction Check Error: file /usr/bin from install of google-earth-stable-
conflicts with file from package filesystem-3.1-2.fc18.x86_64

Note the line relating to the installation. :)

yum install ./foobar.rpm
man 8 yum - localinstall     ¦ This command is maintained for legacy reasons only.
rpm -ivh --noscripts --excludepath /usr/bin  google-earth-stable_current_x86_64.rpm
xdg-desktop-menu install /opt/google/earth/free/google-earth.desktop

Does anyone know where I can get a working google-earth-stable.i386, one that won't conflict with Fedora ?

For some reason, there are times when I log into the system and it simply won't load the desktop. The GDM shows me the login prompt, I select my username, enter my password, and it says 'Logged In' with the
little green checkmark next to it. But it just sits there. It doesn't load the desktop and the only way to get to the desktop is to restart the system and log in again.

This happens with no rhyme or reason. Just 'sometimes' and always at system boot.

I'm running F18, fully patched, with XFCE as the DE.

Why, when installing a new app do we need to also install the -libs and the -devel if the app is needed to make another app work.

Why cannot -libs be part of the installation if they are that important to the operation. Why are -devel, which I'm guessing are development files for the app needed, does this mean the app is bar minimum and cannot be used when required by another app.
