Google Earth not working slackware-64


Hi, I've enabled multilib on my system using Alien's wiki. I tried the slackbuild script from sbo and it built the package. I installed the package fine. But google earth keeps crashing when it starts up. It seems to be a problem with the linking or libraries,i think, it keeps giving a weird stack trace on the crash log.

Code:
Major Version 5
Minor Version 2
Build Number 0001
Build Date Jun 10 2010
Build Time 16:15:55
OS Type 3
OS Major Version 2
OS Minor Version 6
OS Build Version 33
OS Patch Version 4
Crash Signal 6
Crash Time 1277660036
Up Time 1.56838

I'm getting it too. Slackware users are getting it, Ubuntu users are getting it, Arch users are getting it. ATI video users are getting it, Intel video users (like me) are getting it, Nvidia users are getting it. 64 bit users are getting it, 32 bit users are getting it.

Apparently, therefore, it's somewhat broken.

There's a thread on the Google Earth forum about it. It is marked as "Answered". However, the so-called answer is as follows:
Best answer - LadyBugz (Google Employee)
Thanks for reporting this issue - we are looking into it.

3 of 15 people found this answer helpful. Did you?
Their forum apparently has no button marked "Yes (for small values of)".

Drop back to 5.1, is my advice.

No issues for me : Slackware 13.1 x86_64, multilib enabled as per alien's wiki, GoogleEarth version 5.2.1.1329 (downloaded new source and used custom slackbuild), Nvidia proprietary driver 195.36.24.

Did you do this before compiling?

Code:
. /etc/profile.d/32dev.sh
Note the . at the front. Logout & re-login after compiling. Make sure your graphic drivers are setup correctly. I re-installed Nvidia proprietary drivers after upgrading to multilib as some files are over-written during the upgrade.

Running 32dev.sh is irrelevant. Google Earth is a precompiled binary-only app. The proprietary Nvidia drivers are irrelevant to me and many others (I have an Intel 965 display), though the possibility seems to exist that the only drivers 5.2.1.1329 actually works on are the proprietary Nvidia drivers...

Had a similar problem but fixed it by going here:
http://slackwiki.org/Google_Earth
and downloading libgl and placing it in the google earth folder ( where the binary is ) tried symlinking first and copying my copy of the lib but it didn't work , for some reason it needs to have the lib itself in the folder, go figure!

Aha! That actually worked -- despite the problem in this thread (signal 6) being different to the problem described back in 2007 (the whole of X crashing).

It's symptomatic of GE's poor software hygiene that a very old libGL makes the problem go away, and significant to see so many other libraries bundled with GE that are past their "best before" date.

Thanks Keith!
