Re: Desktop freeze with 270.x drivers, KDE 4 and Compiz
For me the problem still exists with the new 290.10 driver. :-(
First - when upgrading the driver from the (opensuse) repository, I got the same "... no display devices ..." as mentionad in the last post. Switching to nouveau driver and then back to nvidia solved this.
But if I enable desktop effects (Composite + OpenGL) on Gnome 2 (Gnome 3 doesnt even display the Login) after some seconds the system freezes with blinking keyboard = kernel panic.
Kernel is 126.96.36.199-0.9-desktop on openSuse 11.4, same on Kernel 3.x on opensuse 12.1
Behaviour is the same for drivers from Nvidia Repository and for self-compiled drivers.
