I’ve got compiz-fusion and openSUSE 11.0 with proproprietary NVidia drivers running fine on my system. I’m using Blender 2.45 to render-out some still 3d scenes at the moment. If for some reason i’d closed down the Blender Render window and then attempt to open it from within Blender by doing a “Render to Window” or “Anim” command the whole X-server graphics system shuts down and i have to log-in again from openSUSE 11.0 login prompt.
This seems to happen even if i close Blender 2.45 and re-start it again if i had the Render window open while i was running it.
The only way to avoid it seems to be to reboot my computer each time i start Blender. That way i am sure my re-opening the Blender Render Window won’t crash my X-server and hence my system.
This seems rather odd considering everything else is running smoothly. Rock stable in fact, i haven’t had any problems with NVidia drivers or compiz up to this point. It’s been marvellous.
Constructive advice welcome,
