Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful in our diagnosis of this issue.

Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.

Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug /var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.

I don't have an xorg.conf file.

Comment 4 Matěj Cepl 2008-09-10 20:42:47 UTC
Would it be possible to get screenshot (or a real photo of the screen) to understand what's the problem, please?

Comment 5 Andreas Tunek 2008-09-11 19:54:47 UTC
Currently xorg restarts if I try to start compiz. Hopefully this will change and I will post a screenshot then.

Fixed in the latest drivers or Compiz.
