I have of course reqorked it before inclusion, that is usual. Close to nothing goes in untouched from the bugs.
Should probably have some dependencies and it should do something about the exec stack notice.
"RWX --- --- opt/googleearth/libcrypto.so.0.9.8"
Maybe just remove this.

ok, it looks like this now. any more comments? :)
What happens when you want to do a version bump and the filename isn't changed?
then we have a problem. I have been contacted for picasa with a request not to mirror the file. Probably I need to contact the guy then again about Google Earth.
It seems there is a problem with file sizes of the GoogleEarthLinux.bin.
