You do remember that locate's database at least by default is only
updated once a week? :)  (by one of the weekly periodic scripts
which usually get run around 4am on saturdays, in this case
/etc/periodic/weekly/310.locate .  If you want to manually force
an update earlier you can run that script as root, tho it usually
will run for a while.)

 Anyway, I just had to go back to the previous google earth version
for the port because the latest one only crashed for me right at
startup, I'd be interested if it works for anyone of you, here
is a shar:

(please include details about at least your FreeBSD version, installed
ports, graphics hw, and graphics drivers if you test it.)

 And here is the full commit message including links to crashlogs, also at:

  Modified files:
    astro/google-earth   Makefile distinfo pkg-plist 
  Go back to 5.1.3535.3218 for the time being, the new version,,
  crashes for me right at startup even on Linux:

  ..with a very similar backtrace to the one I got on FreeBSD:

  If you want to test the new version yourself I've put a shar of the port here:
