[CentOS] Various OpenGL apps crashing in CentOS 5?

Hi Rubin,

I use OpenOffice 2.3.0 - the default version in CentOS 5.2 
(openoffice.org-core-2.3.0-6.5.1.el5_2) and I use experimentally
OpenOffice 3.0 beta2 - both run without any problems.

GoogleEarth was slightly older - version 4.2.0205.5730.  I upgraded to
the latest one  - version 4.3.7284.3916 (beta) - and it is significantly
slower, there is a huge CPU load (almost 100%, both cores)  and after
the installation I had problems with SELinux, but it is usable.  I tried
it on a laptop with ATI GPU (OpenSuse 11.0, x86_64, fglrx) and it
crashes after the start.

Best Regards

Vaclav
