Thread: Google Earth, openSuse 11.0 and ATI Radeon HD 2400XT

  1. Google Earth, openSuse 11.0 and ATI Radeon HD 2400XT

    Neither Google Earth version 4.2 and 4.3 work with my ATI Radeon HD 2400XT
    graphics card under openSuse 11.0. On running it, the splash screen appears
    for several seconds, then X restarts and puts me back at the login prompt.

    I tried the fix detailed on this page:
    http://n01getsout.com/blog/2006/11/2...zing-with-ati/
    (downloading libGL.so.1.2, moving it to /opt/google-earth and renaming it as
    libGL.so.1) and Google Earth now works without crashing. However, it runs
    in openGL mode and is quite slow even with my 2GB of RAM and dual-core
    Pentium.

    Has anyone else had this problem and fixed it satisfactorily?

    Are you sure direct rendering is working? Please post the output of
    glxinfo.

    I had 4.2 and 4.3 running. While 4.2 was great 4.3 is still very slow
    on my machine too and I absolutely don't know why.

    T.M.

    Apparently it isn't working. Is this something I can fix easily?

    Here is your problem.

    You need to install the ATI proprietary driver. The open source version is crap.

    Here is mine.

    OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
    OpenGL renderer string: ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics
    OpenGL version string: 2.1.7769 Release

    You probably don't have the ATI proprietary driver installed or it has not been
    enabled. After you install the ATI driver you need to run sax2 with the
    proper parameters.
