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

Looks like you don't have Mesa-32bit installed. For radeonhd driver you need to

Option "DRI"

in 'Section "Device"' of your /etc/X11/xorg.conf. It's not our default, since
we only support it on R500 cards (Radeon 1xxxx) and even on these it's still
considered experimental. For GoogleEarth you need to add

<device screen="0" driver="r300">
<application name="Default">
<option name="vblank_mode" value="0" />
<option name="force_s3tc_enable" value="false" />
<option name="disable_lowimpact_fallback" value="true" />

to /etc/drirc. The latter is fixed for SLE11 (>= RC2).

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

Probably a known issue. See Bug #465051
