Summary: kde4 unstable with desktop effects + fglrx
Product: openSUSE 11.1
Version: Final
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: X11 3rd Party Driver

I have a ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 in my laptop and so have to install ATI's
driver - specifically ati-driver-installer-8-12-x86.x86_64

If I enable desktop effects in KDE4 is does work well ... for a while. But
every 5-10mins I get a lockup. To unlock I can press ctrl-alt-f1 and then
ctrl-alt-f7 and I get some more screen drawing. Eventually kde gets fed up and
tells me compositing is disabled.

I can't tell if the problem is with ATI, the X server, KDE 4 or something else.
But its pretty much unusable.

desktop effects *have* to be disabled.
