I just installed opensuse 11.1, and I’m finding a really weird problem. When I activate animations in compiz (such as alt-tab ring switcher or when I move the mouse to the upper right corner and all the applications pop up) after I do a couple of switches between applications, the whole system freezes. It freezes still IN the switcher mode and I can still move my mouse but I can’t click on anything. Of course in windows I would press ctrl-alt-del but I’m new to linux and don’t know of any ‘rescue’ key combo so I end up pressing the power button until the comp shuts off.
But more importantly, what is the problem?? All other animations and everything else runs smooth (I’m running Gnome). I tried that system repair feature too with no luck. Any ideas please?
