Re: Google Earth

Google Earth is a Windows program that runs in WINE. I have not used it in
quite a while but it used to come already configured with its own, specially
configured, version of WINE. And it was not FOSS. It also took a 3D video
driver which you had to provide.

If you haven't used something in quite a while it is best to check your facts before post lest you spread false statements.

[egreshko misty google-earth]$ file googleearth-bin
googleearth-bin: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.2.0, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped

So you have more to look at here. A kernel upgrade, which was 01/11/2008. A
WINE upgrade which was 01/12/2008. And, depending on what parts of Xorg you
have installed, the latest upgrade was 01/09/2008.

So, no WINE necessary...unless you are suggesting the one made from grapes.
