google-earth-7.1.1-1580 failure


Downloaded the latest deb-file (I'm running 32-bit)and used the sbo-scripts - everything installed fine but the sucker bombs out when I try to run it.
And yes - have removed the persian font and set up the lib-link.
I'm using 14.0 and 3.7.1-kernel, intel graphics (not i915!)

Below is the error-message when starting it from a terminal:
Code:
$ google-earth
[0827/092302:ERROR:net_util.cc(2195)] Not implemented reached in bool net::HaveOnlyLoopbackAddresses()
[0827/092303:ERROR:nss_ocsp.cc(581)] No URLRequestContext for OCSP handler.
[0827/092303:ERROR:nss_ocsp.cc(581)] No URLRequestContext for OCSP handler.
[0827/092303:ERROR:nss_ocsp.cc(581)] No URLRequestContext for OCSP handler.

[0827/092304:ERROR:nss_ocsp.cc(581)] No URLRequestContext for OCSP handler.
Google Earth has caught signal 11.



We apologize for the inconvenience, but Google Earth has crashed.
 This is a bug in the program, and should never happen under normal
 circumstances. A bug report and debugging data have been written
 to this text file:

    ~/.googleearth/crashlogs/crashlog-521cb649.txt

Please include this file if you submit a bug report to Google.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Also (by looking at the first error-line - about loopback), I'm using a fixed ip-address but 'localhost' is (as always) set to 127.0.0.1 ...

I also have the same error messageon the latest Google Earth (7.1.1.1888), but it worked normally after that
it seems that it requires 3D Acceleration hardware such as ATI and NVidia to work well

*big sigh* Thank you for the heads-up - so that means I'm screwed with this rig unless I go out and buy a nvidia-card and install the nvidia-driver (and no, I'm not touching ati!!)?

Does anyone have a version-6-something of google-earth? I used to use that and it worked fine, but then there is this irresistible urge to have the latest and shiniest ...

Oh and btw - I probably have the 1888-build - at least I downloaded the latest but the sbo-script said 1580, but the md5sums didn't match - so yes, guess I have 1888.

Also - mine crashes with the same error-message each time. removing and reinstall x times - still no difference. Running it several times - still crashing.

Hmmm - the 'most recent' is build-1580. There are several hits on build-1888, but they all (eventually) points back to google-earth download - and that is 1580.
Guess I just have to wait and see ... darn it!!


[edit]
Sorry folks - I had only looked at the .info-file which carried '1580', so when I changed that to '1888' the resulting package still came out as '1580' - forgot to look in the .Slackbuild-file which has '1580' - the .info-file is seemingly not used ...
Seeing my md5sum is different from what's in .info - I guess I have the '1888'-version after all - still doesn't work though - no matter what I call it.

I have Slackware Current 32bit and Google Earth 7.1.1.1888 from Willies github and all works but no picture, only white frame.
When I right-click and select reload I get
Code:
404. Thatís an error.

The requested URL / was not found on this server. Thatís all we know.

Can you post a screenshot?

Can you also mention your machine specs? especially the GPU

Try the solution explained on this Google Forum: Adding this line:
export LC_NUMERIC=en_US.UTF-8
before
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=.:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH ./googleearth-bin "$@"

Hm... i got the same output, a white background with some text, but no images actually
this is on my main desktop: http://i.imgur.com/ecIoDqZ.jpg

Update: I tested with another location, this time a garden in Singapore and it does have image. Probably your location doesn't have image on Google's database. Check it out: http://i.imgur.com/bnxKvHD.jpg

If it matters, locations with no picture in google earth has pictures on google maps. On some locations I do have text just like in your screenshots.

Thanks for effort anyway
