error running installed google earth in fc5

I have tried google earth by installing both by root and as a user but in both case while running via terminal this error comes.

libGL error: open DRM failed (Operation not permitted)
libGL error: reverting to (slow) indirect rendering
Google Earth has caught signal 11.

Another crash happened while handling crash!

There was no problem during installation. I don't know what this error means and what to do to make it running.

Welcome to LQ!
Google earth needs 3D Accelleration enabled. Let's hope you have an nvidia video card (or maybe ATI), because these seem to be the only manufacturers who support linux in this respect.
Google for "linux nvidia driver" or whatever, as appropriate.
