New Compiz will not start on Sabayon no matter what I do.


I just emerged the newest version of Compiz Fusion on my machine and I cannot get it to work no matter what I do.

If I simply try to start Compiz by running "compiz --replace" the only thing that happens is KWin stops running.

If I start fusion-icon in a terminal, I don't see anything either; the exact same thing happens as if I were to just type "compiz --replace."
Here is the exact output of that:

Code:
* Detected Session: kde
 * Searching for installed applications...
 * NVIDIA on Xorg detected, exporting: __GL_YIELD=NOTHING
 * Using the GTK Interface
 * KWin is already running
 * Setting window manager to Compiz
 ... executing: compiz --replace --sm-disable --ignore-desktop-hints ccp
When I try to run "compiz --replace --sm-disable --ignore-desktop-hints ccp" by itself in a terminal, I just get "Segmentation fault."

I am 99% positive that I built everything correctly; I recompiled my kernel and reinstalled all of the packages AND my video drivers (169.12) after I couldn't get it to work the first time.
I tried an older video driver (169.09) but nothing happened.
I can run all games fine, and I get like 20,000fps in glxgears.

Here's my xorg.conf:
Code:
