You can create your own.....

  1. rpmrebuild -ep google-earth-stable-XXX.x86_64.rpm (you may need to "yum install rpmrebuild first)
  2. Search for the line containing /usr/bin. The line is:
    %dir %attr(0755, root, root) "/usr/bin")
    Remove it.
  3. Save and exit. Answer y. It will then tell you the location of the fixed rpm.
  4. yum install PATH_TO_FIXED_RPM

I have switched my laptop to Ubuntu 12.04 (14.04 was not out then) from Windows XP. Everything works great except for two things:

Google Earth does not recognize his on-board VGA adapter (Intel 945) as capable to manage 3D textures. and I cannot get his old Lexmark x2620 printer to work. Can anyone suggest some pointer.

I observe 2 different behaviors of vi that I cannot explain. 2 different machines, same distribution

On one machine when I underline some text with the mouse (not in append mode), vi turns to a VISUAL mode, and not in the other machine.

Each time I turn off Fedora 24, I get the following message about 50 times printed in the console:

Kernel not configured for semaphores (System V IPC). Not using udev synchronisation code.
device-mapper: remove ioctl on fedora_alpha-root failed: Device or resource busy Command failed

What does that mean?
