Description Chris Ricker 2002-02-27 01:09:06 EST
This is with the latest KDE from errata (kdebase-2.2.2-1).

When I log in and KDE starts up, kicker segfaults.  Here's the backtrace:

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-02-27 05:49:42 EST
By any chance, are you using an NVidia or Neomagic graphics card? In that case, you need 
to turn off Antialiasing (X bug).
Comment 2 Chris Ricker 2002-02-27 09:44:34 EST
It is an NVidia card (TNT2).

Does it help to use the binary drivers from NVidia, or the open source drivers,
or is anti-aliasing just always broken no matter what driver is used?
Comment 3 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-03-04 06:15:49 EST
I don't have an NVidia card, so I can't tell. 
Removing ~/.kde/share/config/kdeglobals should "fix" the problem by disabling 
antialiasing, though.
