Summary: [i845G] KDE hangs before startup completes without

Classification: openSUSE

Version: Factory
Platform: x86
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW

KDE was working apparently fine with M3's 4.6.x and upstream workspace,
session, etc theming, even after updating to 4.7. Then I decided to start fresh
by removing most content from ~/, leaving .mc, .fonts, .mozilla, .bashrc, etc.
so that for X purposes only the user would be brand new. After that, neither
login from KDM nor startx would open KDE all the way up, hanging with a black
screen after the default KDE splash got about half way through. The hang
disables the keyboard entirely, forcing fixup via ssh login or power switch.
Eventually I thought to try creating /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/70-composite.conf

Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "Disable"

Now KDE 4.7 works.
