Fixing Picasa for Linux segmentation fault, part 2

In addition to my previous take on this subject 3 years ago, here's a note to self what to do when Google Picasa for Linux spits out nasty segfaults instead of actually launching.

  1. Try this method first.
  2. If segfaults still persist, then install Wine from your standard distro repository (ie. yum install wine).
  3. Replace Picasa's built-in wine-preloader executable:
    cp /usr/bin/wine-preloader /opt/google/picasa/3.0/wine/bin/wine-preloader
That's it. Solution found somewhere on Fedora forums.
