Default 280.11 seems to break google earth for me

Hi,

As I am a gnome 3 user, I upgraded to 280.11. Since then, I cannot start google earth anymore (segfault at starting, a gdb backtrace pointed me directly to libGL).

I'm using a 64-bit version Linux, and dowgrading to 275 makes google-earth work again (and gnome's extension area not work again).

Has anybody got the same symptoms ?

What distro are you on? On some distros, 32-bit video acceleration, which Google Earth uses since it's a precompiled 32-bit binary, comes in a seaparate package. Depending on how your distro does things, your 32-bit support paclage may still be at version 275. Upgrading it to match 280.11 may solve the problem.

I'm on 64-bit Arch Linux here (I'm a Gnome 3 user as well), and Google Earth works fine for me with 280.11.

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. Being on the same distro made troubleshooting this one dead easy: the PKGBUILD you're using is defective somehow. When I installed a lib32-nvidia-utils-beta package built with it, Google Earth segfaulted on startup. Build with this one instead http://pastebin.com/QAVVW1qZ and Google Earth will work. It's basically the official Arch PKGBUILD for lib32-nvidia-utils with the package renamed and with the version bumped to 280.11. I've already posted about this in the AUR entry for lib32-nvidia-utils-beta http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=19453.
