Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 249517
google earth zoom broken
Last modified: 2008-04-04 09:46:14 EDT
Description of problem:
I see "fog" when trying to zoom in on google earth. dmesg shows
[drm:i915_vblank_swap] *ERROR* Invalid pipe 0
Googling reveals this
and blames mesa. There is a fix too.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
run google earth with a "Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML Express
Graphics Controller" and try zooming in on something.
The url I posted claims that the problem is fixed in later versions of mesa.
Why is rawhide still on 6.5.2 when 6.5.3 and 7.0 are out? Please can someone
crank out a later version.

Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
during the development of Fedora 8. In order to refocus our efforts as
a project we are changing the version of this bug to '8'.
If this bug still exists in rawhide, please change the version back to
(If you're unable to change the bug's version, add a comment to the bug
and someone will change it for you.)
Thanks for your help and we apologize for the interruption.
The process we're following is outlined here:
We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.
I don't see this anymore with kernel 2.6.25-0.185.rc7.git6.fc9.i686 and
mesa-libGL-7.1-0.21.fc9.i386 but I am also running a newer version of google
earth. Unfortunately the app is so uselessly slow at the moment that it's
unusable but the atmosphere bug appears to be gone so I will close this bug,
marking rawhide as the resolution. I am not sure if it works in F8 btw.
