I downloaded the .rpm file from Google and am trying to install
Picasa for Linux on CentOS 5. I get the below error. Is this because
I'm using SELinux or because of something else?  I found a small
Picasa folder in /opt (24 items, 143.7 KB) but it seems to end there.
Picasa is one of the programs my wife uses on Windows. TIA!
