Re: Google earth doesn't display anything on my Debian Wheezy amd64

I've installed the latest stable google earth from the google-earth's
official website, and installed all of the dependencies. However, when
the google-earth starts up, it doesn't display the earth, but an empty
black region. Despite this black region, other part of google earth
works well.

It might be caused by something related to Qt or OpenGL, but Stellarium,
which is also based on Qt and OpenGL, works well for me.

I'm using Kernel 3.0.

Wish anyone could offer me some help.

Thanks for your patience and time.

Kernel 3.0 - does that mean you're running Sid??

$ glxinfo | grep 'direct rendering'
give "yes"?

If so, do you get any error messages when you launch googleearth from CLI? eg:-
$ googleearth

If so, did you get any warning when you build the nvidia drivers?
Anything in the build log?
$ cat /var/log/nvidia-installer.log | less
$ cat /var/log/nvidia-installer.log | grep -i fail

How did you disable nouveau?
