Smile 14.1 - some questions about errors at startup - and yes some programs now don't work


Overall the upgrade was a success, all programs except for Skype and Google-Earth works, all programs under Wine works since using Alien's 14.1 packages.. Just a few things that I am wondering about..

First at boot I get some errors that I don't recall seeing before:

Code:

Sys works fine though I can reboot, shutdown normally, should I just ignore?

Skype gives me segmentation fault, tried recompiling a package, but still same , and also google-earth won't run either:

Code:
slackuser@slackmachine:~$ google-earth
./googleearth-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libGLU.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
slackuser@slackmachine:~$
I am guessing I may need a new package as well for google-earth, I dunno, except I never recompiled or installed wine, it just works, as well as dosbox, audacity, libreoffice, snes9x....

Thoughts?

Got skype to work, just edited the slackbuild and changed the version from 4.1.0.20 to 4.2.0.11 after downloading the 4.2.0.11.tar.bz2 from skype.com, ran the slackbuild again, and it works *shrug* , still can't figure out google-earth though...

Newer Google-Earth requires you to have OpenGL rendering, meaning if you are using Intel GPU, then you are out-of-luck

about the error message, it seems that you are using dual GPU and the kernel is detecting both of them.

I see. I am using NVIDIA card, and yes I am just using the binary blob. After the upgrade Google-Earth broke, so I downloaded the latest NVIDIA binaries, 331.28, but I kept getting errors when trying to install it - so I reverted to 319.72 , and installed fine, and I did make sure to install compa32 as well as OpenGL , still no luck

I had to go back and try to setup the 331.28 NVIDIA binaries again to get the errors - it only happens during the compat32 phase , and these are the errors:


Code:
unable to determine the architecture of the files '/usr/X11R6/lib/libEGL.la', which has an architecture specific conflict
unable to determine the architecture of the files '/usr/X11R6/lib64/libEGL.la', which has an architecture specificconflict
unable to determine the architecture of the files '/usr/lib/libEGL.la' which has an architecture specific conflict
unable to determine the architecture of the files '/usr/lib64/libEGL.la' which has an architecture specific conflict
I can still boot X and get DRI - but I don't get these errors when using 319 , so I am still using that, either way Google-Earth still gives me the error:

Code:
slackuser@slackmachine:~$ google-earth
./googleearth-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libGLU.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
slackuser@slackmachine:~$
I did make sure to also install OpenGL too... so., I dunno

If i remember correctly, newer NVidia driver does remove some files on 64 bit architecture. That could be your problem. Read them here

Issue with later drivers, good info but did not solve anything - I attempted to rebuild an install of Google-earth, still no luck, I did download 325 nivida binaries, installed perfectly , no errors, but did not help Google Earth. I don't know, I am guessing I probably just have to wait until a new Google-Earth slackbuild and version of Google Earth is released.. Still a shame that no 64bit Google-Earth... Overall though I am happy with my new sys., Google Earth is not an urgent matter, but I will be following the NVIDIA issue thing a little more closely since others are having the same issues with later versions of the drivers. 325 is working ok, so I am staying with that now.

Cool thanks!

--

Ran and installed fine, but.. now I get this:

Code:
slackuser@slackmachine:~$ google-earth
/usr/bin/google-earth: line 43: ./googleearth-bin: No such file or directory
slackuser@slackmachine:~$
When I was using the script I got this warning at the end:
Code:
 WARNING:  zero length file opt/google/earth/free/kh20

Slackware package /tmp/google-earth-7.1.2.2041-x86_64-1.txz created.
Thougth I don't think that is a cause for concern.

--edit

I did make sure to download the Debian/Ubuntu .deb file from Google too.

Is this a 64 bit machine?

Have you read this note?

4) GoogleEarth is a 32bit application only. You need to have the 32bit
compatibility packages installed to have this work on a 64bit system.
Otherwise you'll just see "no such file or directory" errors. I am aware
that Google puts a 64bits debian package out, but this is a 32bits package
with a 64bit wrapper for debian that installs multilib

By the way, did you download the i386 source or amd64 source?
