KWin Crashes on startup.
« on: January 22, 2010, 01:26:11 AM »
I'm running Ubuntu 9.10, everytime I boot up Kwin immediately crashes and I have to use Metacity which I hate..haha. I would definitely consider myself a noob when it comes to linux.. so detail would be nice :)
..here is a crash report:
Code: [Select]
Application: KWin (kwin), signal: Aborted
[KCrash Handler]
#6  0x00cbd422 in __kernel_vsyscall ()
#7  0x003624d1 in raise () from /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libc.so.6
#8  0x00365932 in abort () from /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libc.so.6
#9  0x0035b648 in __assert_fail () from /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libc.so.6
#10 0x00bca91d in _XRead () from /usr/lib/libX11.so.6
#11 0x0025325d in ?? () from /usr/lib/libGL.so.1
Backtrace stopped: previous frame inner to this frame (corrupt stack?)

Any ideas anyone? Please and thank you. :)

Can you post a uname -a?
I'd personally do as Joe suggests

You might be right about that, Joe.

The error is in libGL, which makes me think graphics drivers.

I'd recommend going to the Ubuntu forums. I hear they're normally helpful.

The usual first step to diagnosing issues:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

That'll install all newly updated packages off the repositories.
