Following very carefully the instructions given for one-click
installation of compiz-fusion on OpenSUSE website, I have installed the
compiz-fusion on my computer. Unfortunately compiz-fusion just refuses
to run correctly. When I issue the command

compiz - - replace glib gconf

as advised by the SUSE installation guide to be run before invocation
of compiz, I get the error:

Compiz: Trying /usr/$LIB/libIndirectGL.so.1

and the computer crashes in the sense that everything gets frozen anf
the computer has to be restarted. This happens despite the fact that
both /usr/lib and /usr/lib64 contain: libIndirectGL.so.1 and
libIndirectGL.so.1.2. In each case the libIndirectGL.so.1 is a link to
libIndirectGL.so.1.2

I will appreciate any help in making the compiz-fusion run. My computer
system runs under SUSE 10.3 x86_64, the Linux kernel is Linux opteron
2.6.22.19-0.1-default #1 SMP 2008-10-14 22:17:43 +0200 x86_64 x86_64
x86_64 GNU/Linux. I have Nvidia GE Force 7600 Gb with 1920x1200 (XUXGA)
. The diver was installed following the instruction given at OpenSUSE
10.3 website and just before compiz installation the driver was updated
so that it has composite enabled. This was done because it was a must
according the installation instructions on SUSE website. The kde session
manager is set to use compiz and the /etc/sysconfig has Xgl instead of
Xorg.

The rpm search shows that I have these compiz and fusion related
packages installed. It has the newer Mesa libs also installed
(Mesa-devel-7.0.1-18
; Mesa-7.0.1-18
; Mesa-32bit-7.0.1-18 as revealed by rpm -qa |grep Mesa).

rpm -qa |grep compiz
