Compiz crashes after plugging in external monitor
 
Hi,
is anybody using Fedora having issue with compiz crashing while
plugging in external monitor?
This issue has happen to me on Fedora 12, 13 and now on 14.

I would like to help and track down this bug. I have collected some
abrt logs but having more people with same issue always help to track
down issue faster.

Laptops I'm using have intel video chips, so please share what video
card you are using.

Cheers,
Valent.

I've been using compiz/emerald on top of KDE since F9, and it never ever
crashed when plugging an external monitor. I don't do it very often (typically
I connect the monitor while the system is off or in standby), but I do remember
doing it on several occasions. KDE (or something else in the system) correctly
recognizes the external monitor, and pops up a window to configure it.
Meanwhile, compiz is completely happy.

# lspci | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960
Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)
# uname -r
2.6.35.11-83.fc14.x86_64

HTH, :-)
Marko

After further testing it looks like compiz crashes only when both
monitors are active, if you configure xrandr to enable only external
monitor and to disable laptop screen then compiz works without
problems.

I'm not X.org or Intel driver expert by far, but this feels more like
an intel driver issue than compiz bug.

Do you have any suggestion what I can do to help troubleshoot this
issue further?

Cheers,
Valent.

I answered in the bug; please stop posting bug reports to the list one
place is enough.

For the record the problem here is the 2048x2048 texture limit on your hardware.
