I could not get it to run on 64, it needs more 32bit libs installed.

Any error?

EDIT: I think it is missing /lib/ld-linux.so.2 in the 64bit iso. It seem it require multilib packages in 64bit for google-earth to work :(

first it wanted libpthread.so.0 so I got that from the glibc-solibs pkg, and then it wanted:
root:# ./googleearth
./googleearth-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libGL.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

So I gave up  :)

I think google-earth 64bit is not a fully 64bit application and i think it need multilib package to work on 64bit. Is there a way to have multilib on 64bit?

yes, 64bit is fully multilib compatible, you just need to install the 32bit libs required by the app you want to run.
