[How to] Google Earth 32/64 for ROSA 2012 Marathon & Fresh

Post by NicCo »

Source: http://www.google.com/earth/index.html

How to install properly the most recent version of Google Earth

ROSA Desktop.Fresh 2012 and/or ROSA Marathon - 32bit
(it's easy, and this should work also for ROSA Marathon)

Code: Select all

urpmi --downloader wget http://dl.google.com/dl/earth/client/current/google-earth-stable_current_i386.rpm
ROSA Desktop.Fresh 2012 - and/or ROSA Marathon - 64bit
(it's complex, this should work also for ROSA Marathon, but changing the 32bit repositories with the 2012lts ones)
UPDATE: for ROSA Marathon the 32bit repositories to be added are specified in the below of ominomichelin msg

When we use a 64bit distro, sometimes we need to install some apps that are not available in 64bit but only in 32:
sometimes apps could be native 64bit still using some 32bit lib, that's wrong but, that's the case of Google Earth 64

then we have two possibilities:
1> renounce to those apps finding other similar per functions
2> add 32bit repositories to install 32bit apps and related libs

If you can't easily renounce to some of these apps, for example, if you need to install skype, wine, teamviewer
or like in this case Google Earth, that are 32bit programs or neeeding some 32bit libs or parts, then exists a solution

You can solve using the chance 2>, and below the needed command strings to add all the 32bit repositories
I suggest to add these repositories, install apps that you need, then you can disable or remove the 32bit repos

From a konsole / terminal - login as root, then execute:
Naturally SKIP this part if you already have these repositories installed!

Code: Select all

urpmi.addmedia main32 http://mirror.rosalab.ru/rosa2012.1/repository/i586/media/main/release/
urpmi.addmedia --update main32_updates http://mirror.rosalab.ru/rosa2012.1/repository/i586/media/main/updates/
urpmi.addmedia contrib32 http://mirror.rosalab.ru/rosa2012.1/repository/i586/media/contrib/release/
urpmi.addmedia --update contrib32_updates http://mirror.rosalab.ru/rosa2012.1/repository/i586/media/contrib/updates/
urpmi.addmedia non-free32 http://mirror.rosalab.ru/rosa2012.1/repository/i586/media/non-free/release/
urpmi.addmedia --update non-free32_updates http://mirror.rosalab.ru/rosa2012.1/repository/i586/media/non-free/updates/
urpmi.addmedia restricted32 http://mirror.rosalab.ru/rosa2012.1/repository/i586/media/restricted/release/
urpmi.addmedia --update restricted32_updates http://mirror.rosalab.ru/rosa2012.1/repository/i586/media/restricted/updates/

Install this compatibility package

Code: Select all

urpmi lsb-lib --auto
Finally, install Google Earth 64 bit

Code: Select all

urpmi --downloader wget http://dl.google.com/dl/earth/client/current/google-earth-stable_current_x86_64.rpm
You can also prefer to download the program locally, into your Hard Disk...
http://dl.google.com/dl/earth/client/cu ... x86_64.rpm
then you can install it from your local path using "urpmi" or "rpm -ivh"

Now you can go to the font sources management and disable all the 32bit repositories


This is my full install log

Works also in rosa2012lts just add the 32 repo for lts this would be :

Code: Select all

urpmi.addmedia main32 http://mirror.rosalab.ru/rosa2012lts/repository/i586/main/release/
urpmi.addmedia --update main32_updates http://mirror.rosalab.ru/rosa2012lts/repository/i586/main/updates/
urpmi.addmedia contrib32 http://mirror.rosalab.ru/rosa2012lts/repository/i586/contrib/release/
urpmi.addmedia --update contrib32_updates http://mirror.rosalab.ru/rosa2012lts/repository/i586/contrib/updates/
urpmi.addmedia non-free32 http://mirror.rosalab.ru/rosa2012lts/repository/i586/non-free/release/
urpmi.addmedia --update non-free32_updates http://mirror.rosalab.ru/rosa2012lts/repository/i586/non-free/updates/
urpmi.addmedia restricted32 http://mirror.rosalab.ru/rosa2012lts/repository/i586/restricted/release/
urpmi.addmedia --update restricted32_updates http://mirror.rosalab.ru/rosa2012lts/repository/i586/restricted/updates/
