I have a Radeon X1600 Mobility chipset in my laptop.
What I did:

Install fglrx X11 drivers and the appropriate kernel module.
Configure the xorg.conf file.  Make sure that it includes:

Section "Module"
	load "GLcore"
	load "glx"
	load "dri"


Section "DRI"
	Group 0
	Mode 0666

Section "Extensions"
	Option "Composite" "Disable"  # this makes DRI work with fglrx

GoogleEarth now runs just fine.
