Default Verify nouveau issue

I only have one system with nVidia display hardware. Currently running
F16 and nouveau since I've not yet gotten the courage to install the
nVidia drivers. :-)

I'm looking for someone running F16 with the nVidia drivers and Google
Earth. To verify the following...

If you go to 25 3.300 N, 121 33.257 E and under "More" in the Layers
section have the "Local Place Names" checked, you should see a red dot
and the word Songshan and beside it 松山區 in Traditional Chinese.

I believe that with the nVidia drivers the Chinese is displayed. With
nouveau it isn't...at least not on my system.

Thanks....

I am using Fedora 14, with the nVidia driver. I just installed Google
Earth, and I can't get any Chinese labelling out of it, unless I switch
to Google maps mode. I use Chinese every day on this machine, so all the
fonts and other Chinese support are in place.

Hummm..... Strange. When I had F15 and nVidia drivers I had Chinese
just fine.

Thanks for checking....and adding to the mystery. :-)

I have f16 (32bit) with nVidia hardware & default nouveau. I see the
word Songshan with the red dot and no Chinese characters. If I hover the
mouse over the name MR.WISH is displayed. Install was from Live CD with
no extra language packs added.

Oh, I see where you get MR. WISH. You have "Places" also checked and
there happens to be a few places hiding below the district name. One of
them is MR. WISH.
