    To be exactly right the video card is made by Nvidia and will not

to work fine and I seem to have some 3D effects as expected.

    I have a F7 system on this computer and I will try GoogleEarth there.

I believe that the driver from the Nvidia page is probably the same one
supplied by Livna. I notice that the Nvidia page says that the Version
is "169.07" and my system reports:

# rpm -qi kmod-nvidia
Name        : kmod-nvidia  Relocations: (not relocatable)
Version     : 169.07         Vendor: rpm.livna.org


I'm shocked! kmod-nvidia (which is just a meta-package) is at version
169.07, but all the real packages are at older versiones. Why?

# yum list | grep kmod-nvidia

kmod-nvidia-legacy and kmod-nvidia-96xx are for old hardware (still
build for current kernels). The up to date package is kmod-nvidia which
is no more a metapackage than the other ones.

for your info, GEarth crashes on my F9 rawhide system using intel driver...
Exactly, system crashes and user is logged out and computer re-start
at login screen.

Any idea???

It sounds to me since it does the same thing on F7 and F8 that there might be a problem with google-earth. It might be that it is designed to work in the ubuntu operating system.
