Default 185.18.08 crashes KDE4 w/ composite

Hi.

Just tried 185.18.08 and finally the console font gets properly restored. I have no idea how long I had to live with this. Thanks. :-)

Unfortunately, with desktop effects active, KDE4.2 crashes w/ 185.18.08. If I turn off the composite extension or only the desktop effects themselves, it works... at least for my short testing. The crashes occurs during KDE4.2 startup, even before the desktop gets faded in.

Reverting back to 185.18.04 worked. So this is defintively a regression. You'll find the bug report attached. Please ignore the API mismatch message. That happened while I was testing around. All crashes happened w/ the proper kernel modules/x driver versions.

Hope that still helps. If there is anything I can do, let me know.

Best regards,
matthias.

The same here. KDE4 4.2.71 crashes if loaded through KDM. I was able to start it directly from console's startx command. Once.

I also have the exact same problem on my laptop with a 9600M GT. If I disable kwin's desktop effects in kwinrc I'm able to start kde 4.2.3 without problems. If I then try to turn on the desktop effects from the configuration dialog, I get an error message from kde saying that it was unable to turn them on, but no crash.

I was also previously experiencing the powermizer issue which is now fixed.

Bug report attached. (Note: there's some API mismatch errors in there, but those are only because I tried to load a game with outdated lib32-nvidia-utils as I'm running 64-bit)

Thanks for reporting this, guys. This appears to be the same problem as reported in this thread. It will be fixed in the next driver release.
