Yep. There is a good advantage to having the package versus getting
the binaries from google's site. There's one little dependency people
are going to miss, especially those on amd64 - it is a 32-bit dns
library. Without that, google earth wouldn't connect to the net. In
fact, going the repository route was the only way to get googleearth
reasonably working on my brand new 64 bit hardy install.

I still can't figure why I need to run it sudo, but it works that way.
Go figure.
