is vector compiz buggy and crashy, or is it just me?
« on: April 20, 2011, 05:50:49 am »

I thought my old computer had problems hardware wise, new motherboard, new hard drive... same problems with vector once compiz is installed.

Vector runs fine. Install compiz... Compiz works but crashes occur at odd times, like while using ccsm, or while trying to search for a file with catfish.

I thought, maybe its just this older nvidia card. Switched it out for a newer one. Same problems.

It appears to crash to the nvidia screen, then vector login screen. I had this same problem on my other pc.

Does anyone know if a log is created for a system crash and where can I access this to try and diagnose the problem?

Its definitely a software problem. I installed ubuntu and compiz on a seperate hard drive. No such problems.

This is very frustrating.
