GoogleEarth 5 on Ubuntu 8.10

Got GoogleEarth today and tried to install it on my Ubuntu Desktop. Once it was installed running the binary gave me the following error

googleearth-bin: relocation error: /usr/lib32/i686/cmov/libssl.so.0.9.8: symbol BIO_test_flags, version OPENSSL_0.9.8 not defined in file libcrypto.so.0.9.8 with link time reference

To solve this just cd to the GoogleEarth dir rename the libcrypto in something else.

stelios@Athena:~$ cd google-earth/
stelios@Athena:~/google-earth$ mv libcrypto.so.0.9.8 orig-libcrypto.so.0.9.8
