The latest rpm for google-earth is failing to install because a conflict with /usr/bin.
an easy re-build of the RPM fixed it... instructions here: http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showpost.php?p=1650497&postcount=27
then sudo yum localinstall /home/tgutwin/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64/google-earth-stable-22.214.171.1249-0.x86_64.rpm
It is now installed in /opt/google/earth/free/google-earth

Successfully went through a workstation upgrade Fedora 20 --> 21 using fedup instructions at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedUp
The only issue I had (and expected ) was an nVidia driver problem that was easily fixed.
F21 installed version 346 but my GT9600 based card needs the 340.
sudo yum remove xorg-x11-drv-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-devel kmod-nvidia
sudo yum install xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-340xx akmod-nvidia-340xx kmod-nvidia-340xx

I have some devices in my network that are not capable of SSL email required by Gmail accounts. No problem stunnel can easily wrap the messages in SSL from GMail. Stunnel can do soooo much more, but for this simple usage, the setup is very easy.
1) yum install stunnel
2) edit the /etc/stunnel/stunnel.conf to look like...
|client = yes
accept = YOURSERVERIP:465
connect = smtp.gmail.com:465
Make sure to change YOURSERVERIP to your own IP addr.
3) create a systemd.service file to start and autostart stunnel at startup:
Description=Stunnel SSL Tunnel
# Give a reasonable amount of time for the server to start up/shut down
4) Start stunnel with systemctl start stunnel.service
5) enable it to autostart systemctl enable stunnel.service
6) send a test email, but point your client at YOURSERVERIP with your Gmail user password.
Works for me!
