Slackware 13 and Google Earth
Hi everybody,

I can`t install Google Earth under Slackware 13. I have searched the web, but i only found old installation procedures. The Google Earth slackwiki did not help much either, or maybe i did not understand it...

Any help would be appreciated!

Worked and ran fine for me.

You're running the 32bit or 64bit Slackware? Have you read the Google Earth abouts on the slackbuilds' page?

I am running 64 bit slackware

Did you make your system multilib yet? I'm guessing no :-)

From the SBo about the GoogleEarth:

1) GoogleEarth is a 32bit application only. You need to have the 32bit
compatibliy packages installed to have this work on a 64bit system.

Otherwise you'll just see "no such file or directory" errors.
