The normal one are for real 64-bit applications, the nvidia-glx-legacy has 
something to do withe the licenxse, the nvidia-glx-32 is for running 
32-bit-applications, which are runnning under 64-bit (either with libs from 
chroot or ia32-libs).

Yes, but I could never compile the nvidia-kernel-module on 32-bit system with 
kernel 2.6.20 (there is a bugreport by me). In 64-bit, everything was o.k.

The nvidia-glx in chroot seems to conflict with the nvidia-glx-32. This is, 
because the kernel or the application wants to run the chroot libs and/or the 
nvidia-glx-32 together (Don´t blame me, this is, what I guess) Anyway: 
deinstallling those in the chroot is working.

P.S.: I am using googleearth 0.6
