Wow, yeah. There is something weird going on there. It looks a lot like
the google-earth stuff is providing some kind of core stuff which
should usually come from a Fedora package, so that package isn't
installed. But I dunno how you got in that state in the *first* place.
What does `rpm -q --provides google-earth` show?
sorry for the second reply... but, google earth still works. I don't
remember when exactly I installed it, or from where. I was deep into a
bit of friends code he is using on robotics, which uses the google
earth api for its mapping. I get one track minded when chasing
software, and that package is 4 or 5 languages, deep directory stuff,
lots of indirect and text parsing in the web interface, so my mind was
in a different space when it asked for google earth. I normally load
such things just using dnf install, but I seem to remember that I
couldn't find google earth with dns (probably typos or text inversion),
so I may have downloaded it from google. Speed kills!
