google earth 5.1 on ATI Radeon 4800 series
On my PC Processor (CPU): Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 CPU 750 @ 2.67GHz Speed: 1,197.00 MHz
Cores: 4 with graphic card ATI Radeon 4870

I'm running
OS: Linux x86_64 System: openSUSE 11.1 (x86_64)
KDE: 4.1.3 (KDE 4.1.3) "release 4.11.1"

and display system Mesa Project
Model: Software Rasterizer, Driver: 2.1 Mesa 7.2

but at star of Google Earth ver. 5.1 I receive message You are currently running Google Aarth in 'OpenGL' with software emulation and will run very slowly. And that is thrue.

What have I to do, what tests to make and how?

You need to install the proprietary drivers for your video card.

Either that, or you need to install updated versions of the open source drivers, if they are packaged for Opensuse at all.
