I could not install Google Earth in my Slackware64 14.0 multilibs.
I first tried also google-earth-stable_current_x86_64.tar.gz, no issue.
I installed the Fedora version google-earth-stable_current_x86_64.rpm, and I get ('jbeziat' is my login) :
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:
Please include this file if you submit a bug report to Google.
So the log :
Stacktrace from glibc:
Always the problem with libgoogleearth_free, and libexpat.
I can tell you that I spent a lot of time in trying to resolve that !
edit : I think that I should have to try an older GE version, like the 6.2, instead of trying the 7.
