No, I don't think so. The problem appeared first at multiarch. It was when I
removed ia32-libs* out of the way. Since that day, the problem appeared. It is
not only googleearth, which face this, it is also other 32-bit apps, that make
With googleearth the problem is good to see: When everything is running fine,
the earth appears, if not, you get a gray background.
My 32-bit flight simulator (X-Plane) for example, does not start, too. And
notice: The problem does NOT appear, when I install using NVidia's installer!
So the problem MUST be in the 32-bit part of debian packages.
