    I don't think so. If it was an older Nvidia or Intel card, I don't think it would be as bad. Anyway, I rebooted (I guess I forgot?!?) and there seems to be a change after that. I now get around 956FPS when I run glxgears. That's a big difference over the 100 or so I was getting. The negative is, by some coincidence, my Google Earth seems to be 'broken.' It won't start anymore and I get an 'error' message. I am not sure if that problem is outside the scope of this topic or category but the log seems to have mention of DRI and the R200 of the card. I think it's related to the 'proper' install or optimization of the video drivers. But, I'm only speculating.

    Anyway, I think there was an improvement over the previous driver install but something is still wrong.

    My original post was just frustration. I am stuck using this old laptop for now and it seems most apps I install have some issue related to the video drivers. Also, there are hardware issues (unrelated) but that's something else.

    Google Earth has been broken on r300 and r500 since it's most recent release. I'd assume the same is true for r200, though I honestly don't know whose fault the crash is.

    EDIT: I meant r300 and r600. Obviously r500 is true as well since it uses the r300 driver.

    Run in the google earth directory:

    LD_LIBRARY_PATH=. gdb ./googleearth-bin

    And please post the backtrace.

    Is that question to me?

    I don't think it's enabled right now. I suspect it wasn't enabled before - do you have to manually change between the two settings?

    I use Gmail and I am finding more problems logging in. I wonder if Google is slipping as a whole.

    Normal people boot when switching KMS on and off. (no offense to the people originally developing KMS )
    Yes, you do have to enable it manually. Kernel parameter on boot is the common way to do it. I think first page of this thread included talk on this.

    I've been hitting this issue too. I am not sure whose bug this is, but Google Earth is the only application that can trigger it. It was already reported to Google some time ago.

    But, users with non-ATI cards claim GE work fine?
