System Settings->Desktop doesn't start


I have Slackware 13.1 x64 and my graphic card is ATI Radeon HD 2400 on my laptop. I install from ATI official site driver for this card and now when I try to come in System Settings->Desktop I got this error:

Executable: systemsettings PID: 13956 Signal: 11 (Segmentation fault)

What to do ?

Are you sure the drivers are installed properly? What's the output of 'glxinfo | grep -i render'?

Well the drivers are definitely installed properly. Not really sure what would cause this. Maybe some bug in KDE4...

Problem is that I have installed Slackware 13.1 x64 ( from same dvd ) and it was working all, Compositing and other stuffs.
I install fresh yesterday(same dvd ) and it doesn't work.

Right, I get that. That doesn't really mean anything, though.

You could try running it in gdb and getting a backtrace. You might need to install debugging symbols for KDE4, though. Not really sure the best way to go about that in Slackware, though.
