I only have one system with nVidia display hardware. Currently running
F16 and nouveau since I've not yet gotten the courage to install the
nVidia drivers. :-)
I'm looking for someone running F16 with the nVidia drivers and Google
Earth. To verify the following...
If you go to 25 3.300 N, 121 33.257 E and under "More" in the Layers
section have the "Local Place Names" checked, you should see a red dot
and the word Songshan and beside it 松山區 in Traditional Chinese.
I believe that with the nVidia drivers the Chinese is displayed. With
nouveau it isn't...at least not on my system.
A common mistake that people make when trying to design something
completely foolproof was to underestimate the ingenuity of complete
fools. -- Douglas Adams in "Mostly Harmless
