Picasa kills X!
Picasa fails to start and kills the Xserver, kicking me back to kdm login.
It was installed from a SlackBuild script, provided by

I have tried starting from KDE menu, and from command line. Results are the same regardless of window manager or desktop environment.

Because it is killing X, I am not able to collect any error messages when starting in a terminal session.

I have uninstalled/reinstalled, and renamed my old $HOME/.picasa folder to $HOME/.picasa_old

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated

If it matters, I am running Slackware -current, with kernel.

Thank You, ehawk!

glxinfo killed the Xserver!

I re-installed the nVidia driver, and double-checked xorg.conf

Problem solved!
