Bug#496519: Missing dependency on libcompizconfig0
Followup-For: Bug #496519
I suffered from #496519
I tried to get a backtrace as asked in the bug report.
At first, running /usr/bin/compiz.real (with all options and envvar set in
/usr/bin/compiz) leads to a full freeze of the machine.
Then, I set "ulimit -c unlimited" and start compiz. I got a core file
but nothing really interesting in it:
(gdb) info threads
* 1 process 4189 0x00007f3d816fb630 in ?? ()
#0 0x00007f3d816fb630 in ?? ()
#1 0x00007f3d84454da8 in __cxa_finalize () from /lib/libc.so.6
#2 0x00007f3d823d6da6 in ?? () from /usr/lib/libglib-2.0.so.0
#3 0x0000000000c9fcf8 in ?? ()
#4 0x0000000000000000 in ?? ()
So, I want to report this useless backtrace and see that the 'compiz' package
itself was not installed. So I installed it with its suggestion:
To be sure, I retried, and this time it was working!
I checked that 'compiz' was really only a metapackage (removing it does not
change anything). But removing libcompizconfig0 makes /usr/bin/compiz segfault
again. And reinstalling it makes it working.
So, I think you are missing a dependency on libcompizconfig0 somewhere
(compiz-core ?, compiz-plugins ?)
