GE: /usr/local/bin/googleearth: line 44: ./googleearth-bin: No such file or directory


Hi. I'm getting the output below when I try google earth on my 64 bit slackware box. It throws in the 'ls'. The previous error was LibGL.so not found." I had libGL.so, but even the 64 bit GE is compiled 32 bit :-((. So I've given it a 32 bit libGL and it stops finding GE. I have gone around with file and ldd and checked for missing libs, or 4 bit ones but no dice. Any ideas??

Code:
bash-4.1$ googleearth

Did you actually make your system multilib, or just pick and choose specific 32-bit libraries to install?

I ran into an issue going 100% multilib. I was advised that with a video card as as poor as the one built into my laptop, I should install llvm and recompile mesa with --with-llvm, because my video card has no vertex shader (Whatever that is, but guys thought it was important). This took me off all beaten tracks with mesa, and I compiled my own (Slackware)package. a 32 bit version refused to compile, and I gave up.

I have stuck in the libs from the slackware-current mesa-7.10.2 package. ldd can find all the libs for libGL.so.1, googleearth-bin has all it's libs in 32 bit. I'm not sure I am 100% multilib, but I'm fairly close. I did not stick in 32 bit libs for stuff not present or used on my system.

First, follow all the steps here if you haven't already, especially number 2:

http://slackbuilds.org/repository/13...a/GoogleEarth/

Second, if this problem continues, follow the directions I posted above to actually make sure your installation is multilib.

Thanks Adam.

I'll do it, but not immediately, because I have pressing matters of a Convention and a few exams to get past before I can get down to it. I didn't know about the slackbuild, and have downloaded the appropriate stuff onto the offending machine.
