Are you trying to use the nvidia drivers with your intel video chipset?

This looks like an intel 3d driver issue.

I have a machine with an Intel 915GM and pcbsd 1.4.1 (using intel-3d driver), and Google Earth crashes.

In another setup with an nVidia Card and pcbsd 1.4.1, (using the latest nvidia drivers), Google Earth works well.

You should use the intel driver, it supports yor chipset (gma950 has a i945G chipset) http://www.intel.com/products/chipsets/gma950/index.htm

Code:
% man i810
NAME
       intel - Intel integrated graphics chipsets

SUPPORTED HARDWARE
       intel supports the i810, i810-DC100, i810e, i815, i830M,  845G,  852GM,
       855GM,  865G,  915G,  915GM,  945G,  945GM,  965G,  965Q, 946GZ, 965GM,
       945GME, G33, Q33, and Q35 chipsets.
You'll have to realize google earth at this stage might not work with your video card.

yeah I am currently using the intel driver.
With no positive results for google earth although kde and other office apps work quite well.

What am I doing wrong and what do I need to do to get google earth running ?

Which and how did you install the drivers for the intel gma 950 ?
Are you using the linux or suse linux ones?
Is there another that I must use?
Os independent?

I really want 1280 x 800 dpi like I had in Vista.

I feel this is another reason I cant get blender to work.

anyone please?

First, calm down and take a deep breath. Second, you sound like you don't have a clue.

The intel driver is installed by default and can be selected during install or using the Display Setup Wizard at boot up.

If you can't make that driver work, don't panic and don't start whining: the driver is incomplete and some chipsets have trouble with it, even old chipsets like i915, this is the cruel reality, deal with that. Even though the man pages say they support that chipset it doesn't mean that if one 950 works yours or other 950 will. The fact that it if the box says its an intel 950 means its just the base, no more. Not all 950s, 965s or 915s are the same, you should already know that.

You might want to try 915resolution to hack the bios at bootup and set your native resolution using the vesa driver. This means no 3d support, and no hardware 2d acceleration, ok. No beryl and sluggish eye candy.

You might get lucky in an update of the intel driver, but you might not, so, don't hold your breath waiting for it to work.

Consider yourself warned.
