I installed Google Earth into Hardy Heron 8.04 via the Terminal using the recipe at: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GoogleEarth
and it hangs on the initializing phase and after about 20 seconds reboots to the user login page. HELP - please! I'm moderately computer-literate with Windows XP (i.e. can solve most problems by extensive googling) but am a newbie to LINUX. AMD Processor.
