Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 431674
Viewing picts in GoogleEarth fails (and destablizes other graphics)
Last modified: 2008-02-06 11:20:22 EST
Description of problem: While running the advanced graphics driver kmod-nvidia,
I can run GoogleEarth, however when I attempt to view a picture stored on
GoogleEarth I see only see black surrounded by the frame of the picture. Once
that occurs, most of my graphics stop working reliably ... such as choosing
firefox or the shutdown pop-up window now only shows black.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.view a picutre in GoogleEarth (tan button)
3.reopen firefox, etc
dmesg and /var/log/messages show nothing
Those drivers are not provided by Fedora.
:-) I waited weeks to see if this would get fixed and the day I finally post the
problem is the day newer advanced drivers get posted ... and sure enough, fixed
the problem! :-) Timing is everything!
Please close this issue as fixed by the latest versions of drivers.
