Thread: Google Earth Segmentation Fault

  1. #1

    Default Google Earth Segmentation Fault

    Hello,
    A couple months ago I updated and could no longer run Google Earth. It shows a segmentation fault error. I updated G.E., and still receive a slightly different segmentation fault error (Different line number).
    I've kept tumbleweed up to date, and just tried installing another new version of G.E., but no change.

    I see posts from 6+ years ago w/ the same error. Having to do w/ video drivers. But, I doubt the solutions are relevant anymore.

    Are others having this problem? Could anyone help me solve it?
    (Experience level, lifetime of IT, but not a programmer, other than basic web/databse stuff)

    -edit to mention, I'm using basic intel graphics.. 630.

    Thanks a lot!

    Not sure if this is helpful but this is what I do to get GE to work. If I don't do the following, I encounter many problems with installation and getting it to run.

    For Google Earrth to work with TW, I always first install the Fedora 33 rpm for libmesa-libglu from pkgs.org. Then GE installs and runs great.

    Thanks,
    That got rid of the install error about mesa.. But, I always ignored that error and it was fine. So, i did install mesa and it still didn't work.
    Mesa conflicted w/ libglu, but I told it to install anyway. Then GE threw a libglu error. I re-installed libglu and it went back to the segmentation fault error.

    :~> google-earth-pro
    /opt/google/earth/pro/googleearth-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libG
    LU.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    :~> google-earth-pro
    /usr/bin/google-earth-pro: line 21: 1000 Segmentation fault (core dumped) "
    $(dirname "$(readlink -f "$0")")/googleearth-bin" "$@"

    Hi
    It's known issue with Google Earth and the Tumbleweed version of curl, they need to fix/rebuild....

    OK, thank you.

    Anyone know if I can work around it? Revert to previous version of curl?
    Maybe I'll go make a little noise over on the GE forums...

    Hi
    Yes, but it's a CVE security issue..hence the updated curl

    Code:
    rpm -q curl --changelog | less
    Not sure if tumbleweed-cli would go back to before that date looking at the history repo: http://download.opensuse.org/history/

    Heading to the GE forums would be best idea....
