Good
So I am not sure what else it could be. Any other suggestions? or Is
there away to install just that shared object file, libGL.so.1?

joe@jmorris:~> locate libGL.so.1
/usr/lib/libGL.so.1
/usr/lib/libGL.so.1.2
/usr/lib64/libGL.so.1
/usr/lib64/libGL.so.1.2
joe@jmorris:~> rpm -qf /usr/lib64/libGL.so.1
Mesa-7.2-10.1
joe@jmorris:~> rpm -qf /usr/lib/libGL.so.1
Mesa-32bit-7.2-10.1
So make sure Mesa-32bit is installed. Check with rpm -qa | grep Mesa.
I think GoogleEarth is 32 bit, so you would need the /usr/lib/libGL.so.1.
PS - what does HTH stand for?

Hope that helps.
