    Default Compiz "SEGFAULTs" when QT4 Apps are launched (GNOME 11.1)


    Hi.

    I just noticed some days ago that after running any QT4 app under GNOME
    (OS11.1), compiz completely breaks with the following message in dmesg:
    > compiz[9714]: segfault at 10 ip b6bc14b9 sp bfbdcaf0 error 4 in
    > libfade.so[b6bbf000+3000]I searched all over the forums and I hvaen't found anything related to

    this issue.
    Can anyone enlighten me a little bit on how to solve this problem?

    NOTES:

    1. This behavior happens to me on two laptops with nVidia Video Cards
    with the latest backend (NVIDIA Comunity repos)
    2. I'm using X11/XGL repos on both machines.
    3. I'm using QT4 from KDE4 repos on both machines to try to solve the
    problem but i did not help at all

    Thanks in advance

    Luis

    Hi Luis,

    As I've seen the seagfaults seem to happen when using the one-click
    method for installing the NVidia card. I haven't had this happen on my
    system.. but read this as being a possible issue.

    You could try reinstalling the NVidia driver using 'the hard way' found
    on the wiki page : 'NVIDIA - openSUSE' (http://en.opensuse.org/Nvidia)

    Also see this post, comment #5 in particular: http://tinyurl.com/7dz9x9

    Good luck!
    Wj

    Thanks *@Wj*

    The suggested method didn't work.

    This is very strange tho. I remember using this machine; before I
    refrmatted, with QT4 apps (like kdenlive or qcad) and they worked just
    perfectly. When I reinstalled OS11.1 and I upgraded everything then the
    problems started. (although not too sure now)

    Anyother suggestion?

    Thanks in advance.

    Luis

    Guess as a suggestion it's worth a try:
    Have you tried reinstalling the compiz packages and also chucking (or
    renaming) the ~/.config/compiz folder?

    Before reinstalling the packages, disable compiz reinstall/upgrade and
    then chuck the folder before re-enabling.

    To check if you have the latest packages from the X11 repo:

    Code:
    --------------------

    zypper up -t package -r X11GL #X11GL or use the number listed for the repo

    --------------------


    Strange that it's on both systems though..

    Thanks again* @Wj*

    Unfortunately it did not work
    The message I recieved in the terminal was:
    > /usr/bin/compiz-manager: line 424: 7693 Violacin de segmento
    > ${COMPIZ_BIN_PATH}${COMPIZ_NAME} $COMPIZ_OPTIONS "$@" $COMPIZ_PLUGINS which is exactly the same, as posted earlier, in dmesg.


    > Strange that it's on both systems though.. Indeed. My daughters laptop has a AMD nVidia CPU/GPU and I have an

    Intel Core Duo CPU and nVidia GPU. But we both share (almost) the same
    configuration. I cannot fix hers anymore as far as she has left this
    morning to the University (about 1000 Km away from here)

    I'll keep on trying whatever new suggestions arise. Just be patient if
    I don't answer very fast . I really have a lot of work.

    Kind Regards

    Luis

    FOUND A FIX!!!!

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