system hang in Kwin compositing mode

Postby nivosh » Tue Jan 19, 2010 1:47 am

Hi guys.

using gloria 7 with kubuntu desktop/

I have changed my graphic card to ATI HD-4550 and installed the ATI driver using Hardware install.

After rebooting I joyfully enabled Kwin compositing for the first time.

I noticed some performance issues with the effects enabled but all in all it went well, and then came the first system hang with the caps-lock and num lock flashes,
I rebooted and tried again and after a few minutes or seconds or hours of work it happened again.

I disabled compositing and all is well so far, but I miss the effects!

How can I check where the problem is coming from?

Thanks for the help

Is this a main, gnome, box that you have added KDE to?
The other day I answered a similar problem and it was because Compiz was not turned off
That turned out much worse though
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
