It's been many months since I ran Googleearth -- last time I needed it, it worked perfectly.  Today, it runs but presents only a black window with no Earth. I don't see a recent discussion on this forum or other debian forums.

I remember this problem from some time back -- it was fixable with nvidia-glx-ia32 ia32-libs-gtk lib32nss-mdns ia32-libs and lib32ncurses5.  So, I made sure I have all those installed, and they are.

Next, I uninstalled Googleearth and used googleearth-package to make a new .deb, and installed that one (6.0.3.xxx).  It runs fine, but there is no change in the video problem.

Who can advise me?  Here is the box:

nvidia-glx-ia32 is a dummy package, it contains nothing.
You need to install libgl1-nvidia-glx:i386.

Why confused?
GE is a 32bit app and need 32bit glx.
nvidia-glx-ia32 dos not help anymore, so you need to enable multiarch.

I am obviously missing something, but what is it?

Ahhh -- now some progress.

Code: [Select]
root@imerabox:/home/don# dpkg --print-foreign-architectures

Thanks towo -- probably I can get through this now.

Upppppps -- I wasn't expecting this, after I installed libgl1-nvidia-glx:i386:



Is that normal?

No, is not normal. I would say, libgl1-nvidia-glx:i386 is not ready for multiarch. I would fill a bugreport.

OK, thanks towo.  Maybe I will file a bug report.  But this OS is over one year old and was converted from aptosid.  It may not be a great example of "stock" Debian sid, at this point.  I appreciate your advice -- thanks!

Yeah, I saw that.  Probably I should not have tried that -- it is the same link as the screenshot in the post 5 posts up.  I think the BTS mail handler changed the code somehow.

Update -- @towo you were correct, as usual.  The culprit is the libxvmc package:

Maybe the earth really is gone and we are living in a big illusion?
