To close this thread, I am just giving my solution:
I bought a 30 bucks NVidia GE 8400 GS - and now Google Earth runs.

Instead of fumbling around with drivers of the onboard chip (which is cumbersome and did not lead to a quick solution for me), I decided to do it that way.

Google earth is 32 bit. Running 64 bit linux causes the libGL error.


# zypper install Mesa-32bit
