While your point is well taken Bill, looking at
http://www.nsa.gov/selinux/papers/policy2/t1.html
makes it clear that adjusting rules and policies is going to require
more time and study than I can afford in the foreseeable future. I
have a plate full.

Since I see nothing directly relating to Google Earth there,
setting /etc/selinux/config to "disable" will have to do until
someone with a working knowledge of SE Linux chimes in or I get
time to do the research in the future.

Thanks, just the same,

Mike
