Dan Walsh's suggestions took care of the Selinux problem. The 
second problem had to do with running x64 - Google is aware of the 
issue and this page goes into it:

Some have gotten successful performance by installing the 32-bit 
xorg-x11-drv 32 bit libs for their video card. In my case, 
installing the 32-bit libs finally allowed GoogleEarth to open, 
but the performance was hyper-sluggish and unusable and the 
program eventually just froze - on my system, I'm running the 
proprietary nVidia 195.36.31 driver with a  G72 [GeForce 7300 
SE/7200 GS] (rev a1) video card (not too dissimilar to setups that 
folks claimed sucess with on the above page)
