Hi Jérémy! I am forwarding you a mail from Kwin's main developer. It
seems that libepoxy 1.5 makes the nvidia driver crash. This would make
all KDE unusuable in setups using Nvidia video cards.
Ideally we should try to avoid libepoxy 1.5 until this gets fixed.

Thanks for your work!

Hi distros,

this is just a short information that the latest libepoxy release
(1.5) causes KWin to crash on NVIDIA driver. See [1] for more

I suggest to not update this package until the issue is resolved. For
distributions who already rolled out the update (I am aware of at
least Arch) I suggest to consider going back to the previous version.
If the KDE team in your distribution is not responsible for libepoxy I
kindly ask to forward this mail to the relevant developers.

I cannot tell you yet whether the problem is in libepoxy, KWin or NVIDIA driver.
