    HMMM apparently no one knows what the rasterizer is. Bet if we figure out what it is and kill it, our systems will work.....

    Hi folks,

    the software rasterizer is just a general hint, that the graphics chip is not properly installed and/or set up.

    (or in the case of intel chips, that you are using a display that's not capable of running Compiz)

    Sorry, I can't go into any specifics now, as I have a very important exam tomorrow but I hope this will help troubleshooting your setup.

    NOTE: I Missed up all the thing by doing anything on the web so i re installed and decide to stay with it and FIX it instead of keeping myself in the reinstallations and random solutions loop.

    Good luck on your exam. Hopefully you can give a few more pointers when you return. compiz worked fine with my intel chip on Hardy, Gutsy, and Intrepid, but no such luck with Jaunty.

    I've also tried downgrading the intel driver, but as mentioned by a poster at that site, [8086:2592] (rev 03) hardware still cannot run compiz on jaunty... so, it seems that others with this graphics hardware are experiencing the same problem. My guess is that it is a bug with jaunty (the hardware is not blacklisted), hopefully there is a bug report on it and it can be fixed....

    Would you like to know more? (Y/n) y
    
     The vesa driver is not capable of running Compiz, you need to install
     the proper driver for your graphics card. 
    
    Check if there's an alternate (proprietary) driver available? (Y/n) y

    I'm debating whether I want to try this... it looks promising, but I see too many reports of side effects like breaking wifi...

    I found another thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1136738&page=6 (post #55) that reflects my sentiments....
