GoogleEarth and Slackware64.


Can you please tell me how to install GoogleEarth in Slackware64 13?

When I install it, I get a "Segmentation Fault" message when trying to start it up.

Thanks!

first, I think you need a multilib system, use alien BOB's instructions to achive that, second, what graphic chip and driver you use?

A mistake that I have made before is I installed the nividi driver before installing the multilbs.
Wine html rendering, GoogleEarth & LightScribe would not work for me unless I installed the multilibs 1st, then the graphics driver.

Ohhh. My graphic driver is nVidia (nvidia 7300 my card). Yes, my driver was installed before multilib and before googleearth too. So, How should I unistall the driver and then install it back?

Thanks again,

Download the latest drivers from nvidia's site and run the installer, it will uninstall the previous drivers and install the new ones

I think you should be able to just re-install the driver. The nvidia driver will uninstall the original when you re-install it.
