Default nvidia driver 177.80 + xorg 1.5.1 + Compiz

Hi!
Somebody out there try to set up the latest xorg server (and all the ~x86
dependency) the latest nvidia driver and compiz?
I would like to try, but my latest attempt three weeks ago caused same crazy
problems (X didn't start at all), and I am not so crazy to do the same
mistake twice in a row, without some prior advices. Well in my latest attempt
I used xorg 1.4.2 and 173.14 nvidia drivers (I don't like Marked beta
software).

Thanks

Nicola

I may have had the same problem a week ago. X would start, kdm would
let me log in, but just about when the kde desktop would finish loading
kde would quit back to kdm. Couldn't find any hint in /var/log.
Started backing out various things ended up getting the system working
again by masking hal 0.5.11:

# cat /etc/portage/package.mask/monolithic
=sys-fs/encfs-1.4.2
~sys-apps/hal-0.5.11
=media-video/mplayer-1.0_rc2_p27725


At the time I was suspecting that hal 0.5.11 was requiring evdev (which
with 20+ hours of unsuccessfully trying to get it to work over the last
year, I wouldn't be surprised if it's the culprit).

Haven't had time to dig further.

HTH,
Roy

After more hours than I like to think about without X, found a warning in:

http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=238969

Commenting out the BackingStore option fixed my problem with KDE 4.1.2
crashing on logging in.

Also I was finally successful in using the latest version of HAL, so
that was not the problem.

The only other gotcha I'm looking into is that KDE 3.5.10 recently
disappeared on my system, leaving just KDE 4.1.2 available.

Lucky!!

Excuse me, could you write down your system configuration?

Xorg version, Kernel version, Gcc, Nvidia-drivers, Hal version, compiz-fusion
version.

Thanks a lot!!

Nicola.

Basically just a ~x86 system with dual monitors (twinview).

Also after kde startup running:

Default nvidia driver 177.80 + xorg 1.5.1 + Compiz

Hi! Good news for me and all nvidia + compiz fan!!
I have just upgraded my gentoo box to xorg 7.4 + nvidia 177.80 and
compiz-fusion 0.7.8 and everyting is working like a charm!
Using kde3.5.9 or gnome everyting is fast and stable.
The command
nvidia-settings -a InitialPixmapPlacement=2 -a GlyphCache=1
seem to help the resizing effect.
I have also tried kde4.1 with compiz and apart a little slowness moving around
some plasmoid (like the Desktop plasmoid) I have seen many improvements.

So for me the subject of this thread is closed.

To reply to Roy, I have no problem compiling mplayer-1.0_rc2_p27725, for
util-linux or encfs no ~x86 sorry.

Nicola
