Summary: Google Earth will not install/run in openSUSE 11.1 using
the radeonhd driver
Product: openSUSE 11.1
Version: Final
Platform: x86-64
OS/Version: openSUSE 11.1
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: X.Org
AssignedTo: sndirsch@xxxxxxxxxx

Google Earth does not install properly on openSUSE 11.1 and generates the
following error:-
"./googleearth-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libGL.so.1: cannot
open shared object file: No such file or directory"

However after replacing the radeonhd driver by the fglrx driver not only does
Google earth install properly and run smoothly the frame rate displayed by
glxgears is double that generated by the radeonhd driver. Could it be that the
radeonhd driver is doing software acceleration while the fglrx driver employs
hardware acceleration?

Note I will submit a separate bug report for a problem I had installing the
fglrx driver.

kg@newbox:~> glxgears
2481 frames in 5.0 seconds = 496.200 FPS
2487 frames in 5.0 seconds = 497.400 FPS
2487 frames in 5.0 seconds = 497.400 FPS
2486 frames in 5.0 seconds = 497.200 FPS

kg@newbox:~> glxgears
5026 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1005.200 FPS
5024 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1004.800 FPS
5026 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1005.200 FPS
5024 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1004.800 FPS
