OK so part of the problem was that I had files from the nVidia installer
lying around from before there were Livna RPMs available for that 169.04
version. My card didn't work with any older versions, so I used the
install script when it came out, because I didn't have a fully
functional machine without those drivers. That's an object lesson in
why it's not a good idea to mix the script installer and RPMs. I think
I have that cleaned up now (though it's hard to tell for sure without a
manifest of all the files installed by the script).
But when I start the new googleearth as a normal user, I still don't see
the globe or the controls. It works fine if I start it as root. The
SEtroublesooter doesn't complain, either.
Any idea what's up with that?

I just tried the latest GoogleEarth 4.3.7204.0836 (beta) with the latest
kernel and nVidia drivers, and the result was:
Error: API mismatch: the NVIDIA kernel module has version
but this NVIDIA driver component has version 169.04. Please
sure that the kernel module and all NVIDIA driver components
have the same version.
NVIDIA: Direct rendering failed; attempting indirect rendering.
And the screen opens, but no earth or controls show.
Anybody have any idea what's up with that? TIA.
