    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):

    [[email protected] 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:
    [[email protected] 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:
    [[email protected] user]$ cd /opt/google/picasa/3.0/wine/lib/wine/
    [[email protected] wine]$ sudo mv wininet.dll.so _wininet.dll.so
    [sudo] password for user: [enter your password]
    [[email protected] wine]$ sudo cp /usr/lib/wine/wininet.dll.so /opt/google/picasa/3.0/wine/lib/wine/

    [[email protected] wine]$ cd ../../bin/
    [[email protected] bin]$ sudo mv wine-preloader _wine-preloader
    [[email protected] bin]$ sudo cp /usr/bin/wine-preloader /opt/google/picasa/3.0/wine/bin/

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