Hi Prexy,

I've run into a similar problem. GE6 loads and starts ok but cannot complete the detailed map downloads.

The net traffic at 640kBs was manually stopped after 15 minutes. At this point countries and major roads were visable.

Perhaps the download is very large, due to street view, but I doubt it.

Going back to GoogleEarthLinux-5.2.1.1588 the download took less that a couple of minutes.
