    Yes, DR is enabled etc. I assume this app will work with "intel" driver and a GMA 4500MHD, but maybe slowly. At least it should start, no?

    On my wife's notebook (64bit) with intel graphics where googlearth is
    installed and works I can see that mesa-32bit is installed. (Disclaimer: I
    do not remeber if I had to do this for googleearth).

    You need the 32bit ligGL is it in /usr/lib available on your system?
    Martin, thanks. I did have that thought as I posted about the lib64 library. Glad you picked it up. That could be the problem!

    Since last posting, switched from my test system to main. 32bit libGL not here, so probably not on test system either but will switch back and resolve.

    @hendersj, DenverD, and martin_helm: There seems to have been a longer than usual delay in your three NNTP posts slotting in here. I now realize it can mean that in a fault-finding thread like this one, unfortunately your posts can be missed as they slot in behind the leading edge of the thread.

    Yes, I found the 64bit libGl to be provided by Mesa, so realized I needed to install 32bit Mesa. Did that, and googleearth immediately started properly, and release 5.2 is running now. Many thanks for that fix!

    BTW your last post didn't appear here until about a half-hour after the time stamp of the post. Hmm that's slow.

    Also thanks to Hank, and Henk (hcvv) for testing assistance. An interesting thread.

    Yes I think Martin is spot on. I'm the lazy one here, ever since I switched to 64-bit I've always included the 32-bit runtime environment pattern in the install. Now I fired up Yast to check from were the 32-bit Mesa-libs come from, and yes they do come in via that pattern and they are installed as are all other packages in that pattern, BUT the pattern itself isn't checked and I can't make it checked? Next mystery!

    Question Re: Google earth install

    A small question:

    What about marble (KDE) as an alternative?
    The old version that came with 11.2 has not much data
    but has anyone tried a more actual version?

    According to the page of KDE Education Project[1] the version 0.10 seems to be
    not so bad at all.

    Good luck

    Hank, Indeed. I had forgotten about the 32-bit pattern. There is always another mystery to be had.

    @martin_helm: Performance of googleearth on the 64bit Intel integrated G45/GMA is good with 11.3's "intel" driver, but am running 2.6.36-90.1 kernel on this test partition.

    Yes, marble 0.10.1 on 11.3 is quite good now and I have used it for looking at alternative routes for journeys by road in UK. But for remote rural locations (e.g. in Devon county), it just doesn't have enough of the landmarks/data that I am familiar with from having actually visited them. That's why I wanted to try googleearth, and I haven't been disappointed with it so far.

    I noticed that there seems to be a delay in the synchronisation between the
    nntp and the web interface (not only today). This makes it sometimes
    difficult to follow a thread in the right order. I also see the posts made
    by web users appear late in nntp.

    Consused you might try this:

    ViaMichelin Maps: maps, Maps of Europe, Road maps and Road atlas

    On june 6 1944 every american officer had a copy op the 1939 Michelin Guide, gives you an impression how good it is!

    If you go to this location in Googleearth I'll go out waving on my balcony, no it's too dark:

    " 5913'16.15"N 18 8'38.00"E"
