    Default Compiz suddenly quits with segfault error


    New install of OpenSUSE 11.1 64bit on Intel Core2Duo E8400 and with
    Geforce 8800. Compiz seemed to work initially. For some reason it
    quits and prints the following error to the system log:

    compiz[3578]: segfault at 579a ip 00007fecb4f27820 sp 00007fffc5e0cd80
    error 4 in libdecoration.so[7fecb4f24000+6000]

    This seems to happen at random intervals. I can go back and restart it
    from the "Desktop Effects" menu, but if it happens when it's performing
    an animation it sort of freezes X and I have to reset my system, though
    the cursor is still responsive and anything else going on seems to
    continue going on (for instance music keeps playing). I really like my
    eyecandy, so any help would be appreciated.

    Bump. Filler. I hope this is allowed. If a mod or admin is going to
    delete this, please just delete this message and not the thread.

    Same problem here,

    compiz[4910]: segfault at 5c9 ip b79d395a sp bfdf50c0 error 4 in
    libdecoration.so[b79d0000+5000]
    compiz[13007]: segfault at 10 ip b7ad194e sp bf8f33d0 error 4 in
    libdecoration.so[b7ace000+5000]


    I found out that if I disconect my Internet connection I have less
    problems with it.

    I use a ATI card: ATI Technologies Inc M71 [Mobility Radeon X2100]

    And the ati drivers from amd.com.

    I hope some one will find the fix for this.

    Thanx from me if you do.

    Your graphic card driver might not be set up properly - thats why you
    get the segfault error.

    For a better experience of Compiz Fusion I strongly recommend to use
    the right NVIDIA drivers.
    You might want to consider uninstalling your current drivers and follow
    the exact instructions from 'Compiz - openSUSE'
    (http://en.opensuse.org/compiz)

    i also get the same error... it happens to me ONLY when im using any
    openoffice applications (which i use a lot) and it makes it practically
    unusable with compiz... tried to submit a bug report but got no
    answer....

    After more testing I agree what innovamanager says openoffice
    applications lets the compiz lib libdecoration.so crash.

    Is there a way to help narrowing this problem so we can really help
    finding the solution.

    FOUND A FIX!!!!

    1. uninstall all your compiz packages
    2. delete your actual compiz repository
    3. install this compiz http://tinyurl.com/avwcql
