Hello,

You can do this in any order.

If you proceed this way, you're going to break your system (!)

As you have downloaded (and installed) compat32pkg and multilibpkg, you can safely remove whole of the multilib as below :

Code:
su
password: 
$ multilibpkg --uninstall @WorldWide-13.37 

multilibpkg ver. 1.1.110412 (stable)
(WARNING) You're using multilibpkg in mode --uninstall, while the system is not                               
(WARNING) in run level 1: current runlevel is (3).

Do you want to continue (Y/N) ? Y
...

$ compat32pkg --remove all

compat32pkg ver. 1.4.110408 (stable)
...
Notes:
1. multilibpkg --uninstall @WorldWide-13.37

This will uninstall the 64-bit part of the multilib (ie the packages gcc*,glibc* and compat32-tools
from Eric). This is a two step process. 1) the installed multilib version of gcc* and glibc* are superseded
by their 64-bit pure counterpart available onto the selected Slackware-64 mirror. 2) The installed packages
of the '64-bit part of the multilib' which have no 64-bit pure counterpart are removed.


2. compat32pkg --remove all
This will remove all the installed compat32 packages.



Cheers.

An update. I removed the compat32 packages, and the multilib packages. I installed the two tools at these links; I used the two tools to re-install multilib and compat layers. All went well, although it did take some time to install the multilib packages.

I then re-installed the Nvidia driver, as instructed. I made the symlink that is called for in the README file for GoogleEarth. The program now launches.

Last problem, now the globe does not show up. I get the frame, the panel on the left side, but no Earth. It remains a white hole. I tried booting, that has made no difference.

If I click on the Google Maps option, they show up as normal.

So, progress, but its not working correctly, yet.

I logged out of XFCE with compiz. Logged in using KDE, Google Earth worked. Started compiz, it still worked. Logged out, back in with XFCE, no compiz, and Google Earth worked. Started compiz, Google Earth still worked.

I have no idea why I saw the white hole. Its gone, and all is well.

Thank-you to all those who responded, and helped.
