Default Fedora 15 Desktop - Picasa 3 on x86_64

I'm running Fedora 15 x86_64. Picasa3 would not run, and I was seeing the following when I started Picasa 3 (from a terminal window):

[user@puter user]picasa &
/usr/bin/picasa: line 189: 14526 Segmentation fault (core dumped) "$PIC_BINDIR"/wrapper check_dir.exe.so
/usr/bin/picasa: line 248: 14642 Segmentation fault (core dumped) "$PIC_BINDIR"/wrapper set_lang.exe.so

I found these solutions via Google searches:

If not done already, install wine:
[user@puter user]$ sudo yum -y install wine
[sudo] password for user: [enter your password]

[Install takes a few minutes]

When wine is installed, do the following:
[user@puter user]$ cd /opt/google/picasa/3.0/wine/lib/wine/
[user@puter wine]$ sudo mv wininet.dll.so _wininet.dll.so
[sudo] password for user: [enter your password]
[user@puter wine]$ sudo cp /usr/lib/wine/wininet.dll.so /opt/google/picasa/3.0/wine/lib/wine/

[user@puter wine]$ cd ../../bin/
[user@puter bin]$ sudo mv wine-preloader _wine-preloader
[user@puter bin]$ sudo cp /usr/bin/wine-preloader /opt/google/picasa/3.0/wine/bin/

Picasa3 is now working for me. I hope this helps.
