    A lot of answers to make here

    Thanks for tthe holliday wellwishes.

    I do not have the habit of using sudo, thus I may be wrong, but in principle they do the same things (except that sudo can use a configuration fle with "special effects). But it may depend on the options you use with the call. As @consused, you should use su -. I took a short glance at man sudo and itseems that sudo -i is the one that also makes uses a login shell.
    And as allready answered, no it does of course not matter where the program is when root executes it.

    And, as it is a binary executable (check that with the file tool, I do nothave a recent download here), it is completelyy superfluous to call it with sh. The POSIX shell has nothing to do with it. Make it excecutable and execute it like every other program.

    For some reason, unknown to me, this thread was closed. I reopened it. I do not see the slightest reason why it should be closed. All contibuters here are behaving correctly (maybe even me) (and it is an interesting thread).

    Thanks for those replies, but I get this error after it claimed a successful install into /opt (used "su -" in terminal):
    Code:
    ./googleearth-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libGL.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    libGL.so.1 is in /usr/lib64.

    Any ideas welcome?

    PS. Noticed it closed when I first tried to post this one.

    You need to start it with the script googleearth, that sets up the paths and other stuff before it calls the executable googleearth-bin.

    through to the nntp side...like the first post in this thread came
    through here at 14:41 CET, this afternoon....though on the http side
    it was posted sometime yesterday!

    No, that has nothing to do with it. The gateway passes messages, and
    that's it. It doesn't perform moderation operations.

    I see the script file /opt/google-earth/googleearth and executed it as normal user (also tried it as su -), but same error both cases, as with initial install which presumably ran that script.
    Code:
    ./googleearth-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libGL.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    .

    it _seemed_ to me that there was more going on than just a gateway
    problem...(because the gateway was obviously working, at times in some
    fora; and, another (old, recurring) problem was noted about the same
    time: http://forums.opensuse.org/showthread.php?t=449272)

    two strange things, seemingly unrelated! i thought something might
    have gotten cross-wired and this locked thread issue _might_ have been
    another software/operator hiccup..

    Do you have 3D acceleration installed for your graphics?
