Slackware's Mesa-11.2.2 package implements the OpenGL 4.1 API.  The
vendor drivers (such as Nvidia) are only needed for FAST 3D OpenGL.  The
laptops here with integrated intel GPU (i915 kernel module), run GE just
fine, if a bit slow at times.

Rich's intermittent crashes are either due to currupted Google Earth
install, corruted  X.org install, or missing/corrupted dependencies, or
some settings in his DE/WM.
