Out of curiosity, I installed Enlightenment 17 on one of my Slackware computers from Slackbuilds. It seemed to install and run okay, but it froze and through segmentation faults three times.
cat /var/log/messages | grep segfault

Each time, I was experimenting with the configuration, moving and resizing "gadgets" and the like. After a decent interval, I killed X with ALT-CTRL-Backspace.
Here's a little information about the machine:
Linux pickerel 3.7.1-smp #2 SMP Thu Dec 20 21:35:25 CST 2012 i686 Genuine Intel(R) CPU T2300 @ 1.66GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux
It's got 1GB RAMs.
Edit: Here's the video card:
00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS/GME, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)
End of edit.
Top told me that E17 was not using an inordinate amount of resources.
Also, because it might be related, when I tried to run GKrellm, it displayed and I could access the configuration menus, but it did not show any information.
My questions are what's going on here and is there some way to make it go away? I don't remember getting a segmentation fault since DOS.
Note that this is not a serious problem for me; I don't intend to use E17 on this box for a long period of time, though I'm using it quite happily on my Mint machine, wiich is newer and has lots more RAMs.
I'm more inquisitive than anything else.
