[SOLVED] Google Earth freezes at startup
Posted 04 November 2011 - 12:33 AM
I just installed Bodhi yesterday and installed every Google Earth from repos I could. They either totally crash with no error message or freeze at startup and I cannot even kill it. The one I still have installed is the stable one from the repos. That one freezes at startup and I cannot do anything on my desktop. I have to shutdown my machine from the switch.
My machine info:
$ lspci -nn | grep VGA
01:05.0 VGA compatible controller : ATI Technologies Inc RS880 [Radeon HD 4200] [1002:9710]

I would love to get a nice working google earth.
Any help will be happily accepted.

I installed the google earth from the Appcenter.
It crashed when I started it in terminal:
drmRadeonCmdBuffer: -22. Kernel failed to parse or rejected command stream.
I hope this offers a clue to someone.

You can try to install the closed source ATI drivers, but in general they are less than stellar in performance and setup.

Now, my googleearth works perfectly. Also, I was having problems with setting up audio apps and jack. Now they seem to all be working. Evidently the newer realtime kernel did not agree with my system. Thank you for replying.
I really like Bodhi. I know once I am familiar with it I will love it.
