What kind of cpu do you have? If it is a Pentium II or III the latest

somewhere found on an obscure place at Google. In that case they offer

The cpu is AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3000+

Which video driver are you using? nv or the proprietary Nvidia driver?

I've got a similar system, but using the proprietary driver, Google Earth
works fine. Haven't tried the nv driver.


I bought the box about 2 years ago and have not changed the driver.
Where can I look to find out which driver is in use?

If glx_gears works then chasing after drivers MAY be a red herring.

Look for possible issues of a old driver module left laying around in
your google earth install directory. (Especially if you remember hacking
it to get it to run the first time you installed). At one time it was
necessary to link/copy one of the driver modules into the GE directory
to get it to work with various cards. This may no longer be necessary.
