Thread: Google Earth crashes on startup

    Default Google Earth crashes on startup

    This is apparently a longstanding problem with Google Earth. When I try to start the app, I get the following:

    Code:
    Wed Aug 06 20:59:54:> google-earth

    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:
    
        /home/hattons/.googleearth/crashlogs/crashlog-53e2cf90.txt
    
    Please include this file if you submit a bug report to Google.
    I've found a lot of discussion about it, but no answers. I installed the Google Earth 64-bit rpm from the Google site. This is the crash dump.

    One suggestion was to use the openSuse distributed video drivers, but I can't run Mathematica with them. Any other suggestions? I would rather not go to the 32-bit version of the app.

    gdb shows this:

    Code:
    Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
    0x00007ffff11aa54e in earth::GfxCardInfoUnix::GetGraphicsCardMemoryInMB(int&)
        () from /opt/google/earth/free/libbase.so
    I found one workaround for it:

    https://productforums.google.com/for...8/Yx-OXv1Ue9EJ

    Not a real fix, but:

    Put the following in 'earth.gdb':


    file /opt/google/earth/free/googleearth-bin
    set breakpoint pending on
    set env LD_LIBRARY_PATH /opt/google/earth/free
    break 'earth::GfxCardInfoUnix::GetGraphicsCardMemoryInMB(int&)'
    commands
    return (int) 1000
    continue
    end
    run



    Then run:


    gdb --command=earth.gdb
    That gets the app running, but it is not a "solution". Whoops! It's locking up now.

    Apparently we have the same bits installed. I'm pretty sure this is related to my video drivers. I am using the ones provided by ATI/AMD, not the ones distributed with OS13.1, but I have to do that to support Mathematica. I do believe the problem is with the Google code, and not with the drivers. I don't know how to report a bug in Google Earth, or I would.

    Although, I'm cynical that they would put much energy into a timely resolution :/

    FWIW, here's a blog explaining how to install and run Windows version from wine

    http://fitzcarraldoblog.wordpress.co...earth-in-wine/

    However, despite reports of success from some people (and I guess that is dependant on their graphics hardware), the author is quick to mention

    So, you might like to try that if you cannot run Google Earth in Linux but you have WINE installed. However, note that you will be wasting your time if the native Linux version of Google Earth crashes because of its incompatibility with the closed-source ATI or NVIDIA video driver. For example, Google Earth 7.1.2.2041 for Linux crashes on my main laptop using the 14.3_beta version of ati-drivers (AMD ATI Catalyst driver, a.k.a. FGLRX).
    It would be useful to see what others using proprietary drivers report/advise about this ugly issue. (I'm just glad I'm running old Intel graphics hardware as I use GE as part of my job.)

    Bah! That is just a runaround.

    It may do no good, but there is an email address listed in the RPM info to which I sent an email.

    It seems a shame to have a half-assed build of a genuinely impressive application. I just reinstalled openSuse 13.1, and GE was one of the first 3rd party applications I've been motivated to install.

    Linux has always been plagued by these unnecessary inconveniences. I am willing to put in the time to work around them, but many users would rather sacrifice freedom for convenience.

    My thoughts too, but I like to share anyway... sometimes helpful to others who come searching.

    Good idea.

    On the same page as you about that.

    BTW, will using Google Maps suffice for you at the moment?

    ..and for others who may wonder about possible alternatives...

    ...although I fully recognise GE is hard to beat for most of us.

    I'm running 13.1 with the fglrx driver. I get the same error as the original poster with the x86_64 version of Google Earth. However, the i386 version 7.1.2.2041 rpm installs and runs with no problems. It's better than nothing and beats running under Wine. Admittedly, the 64 bit version would be better and certainly Google could and should institute whatever the required fix is -- they've been sitting on this for a long time.
