[Bug 492271] [NEW] ubuntu 9.10 totally freezes when compiz is enabled


Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: compiz

I've upgraded from Jaunty to Karmic and since then my machine is locking
every time i try to enable compiz effects through System > Preferences >
Appearance, tab Visual Effects. Selecting any option but "No Effects"
will cause the system to totally lock up: screen locked, mouse not
moving, keyboard not responding (caps lock or num lock leds not
responding when pressing the keys), hit the power button cause no
effect, I have to turn the machine off by holding the power button and
turn it on again.

I'm using ubuntu in this machine since the 8.04 version (compiz almost
fully enabled), everything was working fine until I upgraded to Karmic.

My machine specs are the following (from the HardInfo program):
Computer: Compaq Presario PC SG3310BR
Processor: Intel Celeron 430 1.8 GHZ
Memory: 1535 MB
Operating System: Ubuntu 9.10
