It is an older nVidia card that worked great with opensuse 10.3 before I
reinstalled it. Now compiz has taken on a life of its own. It was
working (except for the white cube) until the last opensuse update. Now
compiz won't work at all. Time for another:
rpm -e $(rpm -qa | grep compiz) fusion-icon
and try again.
