Google Earth in Fedora, bad ELF interpreter

If you get the following Google Earth error under 64-bit Fedora 17 or Fedora 16:

./googleearth-bin: /lib/ bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory

Try installing the redhat-lsb.i686 package as follows:
sudo yum install redhat-lsb.i686

Note: You could find this yourself for similar problems by typing at the Terminal:
yum whatprovides
Where of course “″ is replaced by the package being denoted as missing.

Removing YUM repositories from RHEL-family distros

One might accidentally add a repository in YUM (for an RHEL-family Linux distro), which causes errors whenever you try to use YUM, An example error would be:

Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: foo. Please verify its path and try again

Where “foo” is the name of the repository causing problems.

The following segment was tested in Scientific Linux 6.2.
Taking the usual precautions as a prerequisite (backing up your system…), check to see if the repo RPM package is listed by executing this Terminal command:
rpm -qa |grep -i foo

Which will respond with the name of the matching RPMs–if one of them matches the repo you want to get rid of, after having backed up your system, this Terminal command would remove that repo file:
rpm -e foo
where “foo” is the name of the repo you want to get rid of.
