13 Some digging around helped a bit - I switched in SystemSettings/Desktop
14 Effects, the Compositing Type from OpenGL to XRender and now it does not
15 suspend (although 'wobbly windows' and 'Desktop Cube Animation' are disabled.
17 In E17 which I use daily the compositing works fine, until I select OpenGL as
18 the rendering engine and then it crashes horribly (won't even boot).
20 I have set up mesa to use gallium (if that makes any odds). Is there anything
21 else I need to configure to improve OpenGL performance (at least to stop it
22 crashing)?
