Default google earth start problem ati-x600

Hi All!

I tried to emerge google earth / both from x86 and ~x86 and I have
32 bit cpu /, and it completed successfully but when I ran the program
it complain about could not access to the GPU or the card has not
enough memory to run GE, but it has because the minimum is 16 and it
has 128 Mb . So I think somehow the program doesn't have right
access to the GPU or it has a bug / when I start it crash
immediately/ . Has somebody the some experience about that?

Thanks your time and advise!

Z.

I have the same problem (on amd64): using the radeon or radeonhd driver
you don't have 3D acceleration, and it seems googleearth detects this
somehow

I can use glxgears and crack-attack with software-3D though...

No clue,
Daniel

yes unfortunately same problem on other platforms but I use the
adi-drivers fglrx module to use 3D acc.

thanks.

I just found this:
http://lists.opensuse.org/radeonhd/2009-03/msg00231.html
which points to this:
http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=20706

So hopefully the issue will be solved soon.

Bye,
Daniel

Hi
I also played around with googleearth a long time and found the following
solution.
I use amd64
xorg-server-1.5.3-r5
xf86-video-ati-6.11.0
googleearth-5.0.11337.1968_beta
gentoo-sources-2.6.28-r3

I didn't get older versions of googleearth to run, they crash at startup.
There are two important configuration options.
The first ist with driconf gui
Disable Low-impact fallback yes
and the second is in xorg.conf
without this option everything is flickering when I move the mouse
Section "ServerFlags"
Option GlxVisuals" "all"
EndSection

Hope this can help you
If you need more config options just mail me

Default google earth start problem ati-x600

This bug is bigger than I expect

I emerged ati-drivers 8.582 seems like without error
and amdcccle report a very similar output: no ati driver present or it
not configured properly, but fglrx module present glxgears run without
error and other opengl apps run good
fglrxinfo shows ati mobility radeon x600, opengl version strings 2.1.84.94

linux kernel 2.6.27-gentoo-r8

driconf put a similar output like amdcccle /no renderer device / :O

So maybe not just G.E has bug
ati-driver install looks weird too

Thanks your workaround
Hope Help
Z.
