Hi all:
I installed the ATI driver using Envy and googleearth from the medibuntu 
repositories. When I try to start googleearth it says it is initializing but 
never starts. If I start it from a console window it complains about a 
missing DRI extension in X org. I do not see DRI mentioned any where in 
XOrg.conf. How can I get googleearth working. This is my XOrg.conf:

# xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
#   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
