    Angry Compiz crashes often

    Hi there,

    My compiz crashes quite often with out me doing something special. Just every other hour or something it feels like crashing and I get following trace back:

    Code:
    Application: KDE Window Decorator (kde4-window-decorator), signal SIGSEGV
    [?1034h[Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled]
    [New Thread 0xb54d96f0 (LWP 8990)]

    Does anyone experience the same or maybe have a clue how i can get this fixed?
    This is happening with compiz 0.7.6 and KDE 4.1.0 on OSS11

    Thanks for any hints!

    To get something 'fixed' usually means submitting a bug report.

    However, before you waste your time doing that, I'd suggest that
    you update your KDE to the latest (stable) build, which is
    4.1.1. (I'm getting that version # from the HELP menu item in Konsole,
    'About KDE' on my system.)

    (I was going to ask you to also post whether you are running nvidia
    or ATi (or something else) for your graphic driver (and which version),
    so after updating your KDE, if you still have the problem, post that info
    here. )

    Hope this helps...
